Last week a couple old film blogger friends, Ian and Dan, invited me on their podcast. It’s called Cinema in Seconds. The premises is that they each pick a very small moment in a film, then discuss why it’s such a significant moment in the film. Honestly, it’s a fascinating concept for any film fan you’ll enjoy hearing their discussions.
Anyway, they invited me onto their animation episode! I was thrilled and racked my brain on what exactly to discuss. Animation is such a wide genre, the possibilities were endless. In the end, I decided to go with an example of early classic Disney animation, Bambi, and some of the newest and finest examples of stop-motion animation, ParaNorman. We also discussed moments from The Lion King, The Prince of Egypt, The Snowman, and Batman and Mr. Freeze: Subzero.
Thanks again to Ian and Dan for the fun opportunity! I had a blast catching up and discussing animation with two great film friends. Listen to the episode below:
