Animation Mentor Sponsors the Animation Podcast

This will be officially announced via the November issue of the newsletter (coming out tomorrow), but I thought I would give you guys a sneak peek!

Keeping in alignment with bringing great resources to our readers, Animation Mentor has partnered with The Animation Podcast. The Animation Podcast, as many of you may know, is an audio interview with some of the most amazing talent in the industry. The creator, Clay Kaytis is a great guy and super talented animator who works at Walt Disney Animation Studios. To find out more about Clay click here.

So you may be wondering what it means to have Animation Mentor as a sponsor of The Animation Podcast. Well, what it means is that there will be more frequent Podcasts which will be posted on The Animation Podcast as well as in our monthly newsletter. We are also very happy to announce that The Animation Podcast will create 1 exclusive Podcast per year for the readers of the Animation Mentor newsletter! We know this will be a cool addition and we hope you enjoy! If you're not already signed up for the newsletter please do so. We never spam, it's filled with great tips and tricks for animators and it's free!

Our first sponsored Podcast is with Dale Baer. Dale Baer came to Disney's as an animation trainee in the late sixties, when the era of the Nine Old Men was coming to a close. He has worked for Filmation, Disney, Ralph Bakshi, and at his own studio, Baer Animation. Dale has been back at Walt Disney Animation Studios since The Emperor's New Groove and his credits include supervising the characters of Yzma, Slim from Home on the Range, and Wilbur from Meet the Robinsons. Dale recently finished animating on the latest Goofy short How to Hook Up Your Home Theater, and he's currently working on the upcoming film The Princess and the Frog.
