Bye Bye Celluloid Podcast: Interview with Jon Dorn

In September, Four String Films’ Jon Dorn sat down for interview with the podcast Bye Bye Celluloid to talk about his work and “tradigital” animation.


Podcast episode description:

While the big studios toil away at The LEGO Batman Movie, Despicable Me 3, Toy Story 4, and other computer-generated cash cows, a number of today’s independent animators are largely responsible for keeping traditional hand-drawn animation alive–but without rejecting digital technology outright. Jon Dorn is one such “tradigital” animator. In this episode, I sit down with Jon to discuss his work, his influences, and the worldview that informs his cartoons and other creative output.
