This is part two of our interview with Jake and Anthony. Again, a HUGE thanks to the two of them for their time.
Also, big big thanks to Eric Hochhalter for help with getting the files where they need to be.
Two recent BYU Animation graduates, Jake Wyatt and Anthony Holden, joined us to talk about their time here. This is part one of that interview.
These guys have moved on to some amazing stuff. Jake is drawing a detective series for Image Comics, among other things. Anthony just started as a Story Artist at DreamWorks.
Check out their blogs! Jake's is here. Anthony's is here.
Big thanks again to Jake and Anthony for the interview. Also props to Birds Without for the snazzy new intro music.

Thanks for listening!
We were recently privileged to have DreamWorks storyman and director Steve Hickner visit and give a couple of fantastic lectures. The first was on story structure, and this is part one of that presentation. Part two will be posted shortly.
Note: this presentation relies heavily on multiple film clips; the audio from the clips (as recorded in the presentation) is included in this podcast, and the overall message comes through quite clearly. However, Steve does allude to some visual elements that you may want to see for yourself, so you may want to get a copy of the films mentioned and watch them to get the full value of the presentation.
Again, a big thanks to Steve for visiting us and imparting such valuable knowledge.
