TCB #11 – Beyond Fleischer, Super Talk.

February 18, 2014 in Podcast by Luis

DOWNLOAD THIS PODCAST

The Corner Booth guys debate!

Luis is a HUGE Superman nerd. He thinks Superman is better than Batman, and he talks about why.

Superman animation has a history of defining and changing the character of Superman.  Superman couldn’t fly until he did so in the Fleischer shorts for instance.

The Corner Booth guys get together to discuss, Superman, among many other things.  Larry’s love of another Fleischer character, Popeye, also gets thrown into the mix.  That’s when sparks start flying.

Popeye vs. Superman?

Join The Corner Booth guys as they enjoy a meal, a debate and a lot of fun banter.  This is what it sounds like when animators simply have a conversation over dinner.

TCB Podcast#8 Disney Conversation with Dale Baer

January 2, 2014 in Podcast by Luis

DOWNLOAD THIS PODCAST

We sat down with famed Disney animator Dale Baer to discuss his career.

Dale trained under renowned Disney Legend John Lounsbury, animating on classics such as Robin Hood, Winnie The Pooh, and The Rescuers.

He went on to start his own studio, Baer Animation, which for many years was a very successful commercial studio. In this time period he kept connections with the Disney studio by working on Roger Rabbit, Prince and the Pauper, and the Lion King.

When the market for commercials declined Dale Baer returned to Disney in 1998 where he has since supervised such characters as Yzma in Emperor’s New Groove, Slim in Home on the Range, Wilbur Robinson in Meet the Robinsons, Owl in the latest Winnie the Pooh movie, as well as once again animating Mickey Mouse in the short film Get A Horse.

TCB Podcast#7 – Building Your Animation Credit

October 6, 2013 in Podcast by Luis

DOWNLOAD THIS PODCAST

Once upon a time, there were groups of artists that didn’t get credited for their work on an animated cartoon.

For example, many ink and paint girls didn’t get credit in some Disney features.  And on Looney Tune shorts, only the animators got credit but their assistants, the inbetweeners, the ink and paint deparment, didn’t get any credit.

Well, thing have changed.  Now everyone who work on an animated cartoons gets credit right?

…uh…no.  This still happens today.

Chance, Larry, and Luis decided to record a discussion they had on this very subject, in a car ride after lunch.  Take a listen as we discuss this interesting topic.

Marketing Yourself As An Independent Creator (Pt. 1)

February 5, 2013 in Podcast by Chance

WE’VE ALL ASKED THIS QUESTION…

How come my art/product/website isn’t making me money? No matter what line of work you are in, knowing how to market yourself is essential! It’s not just about what you’re selling – it’s about how you present and offer desired value to your market, audience, etc. That said, no one knows the importance of being able to create an independent economy for one’s self more then us ARTISTS!!! The problem is that most creative people just want to be creative. Hey, who doesn’t?…that’s the fun part! Short of a fluke or a miracle, however, simply putting your work online in front of random viewers just isn’t enough to generate a lucrative audience/result. There’s a lot more to it and we can ALL benefit from knowing how to market ourselves!

Join us, your Corner Booth Animation pals, Luis Escobar, Chance Raspberry, and Larry Whitaker as we take one of hopefully several looks into the nuts and bolts of independent marketing.
