This week Ian and Ben are joined by the return of Nate and the later appearance of Doug to discuss retreats inspired by the Oceanmaker’s Production.
But first Ian brings us today’s headlines.
Then Ben shares a few headlines of his own.
Moving onto the main topic, Ben shares the article Watch Animated Short ‘The OceanMaker’, Learn How a Tropical Retreat Made This Film. Lucas Martell took the crew of the film to a Caribbean island for six weeks to work on the short. They even produced a YouTube behind the scenes series chronicling the experience.
This leads to a series of questions. Is an animation retreat a good way to network, learn new skills, and relax or can it be a good production environment? There are plenty of artist retreats and getaways out there, but how would one work for animation? World Animation Retreat is a weekend. Would it make more sense to run such an event as a nonprofit?
Finally, everybody hunkers down to play some King of the Hill trivia. Who will emerge victorious this week? Tune in to find out!
