For a different kind-of article, I was able to take part in an animation workshop for the film WOLFWALKERS. I've included some coverage of the event in the form of quotes and interesting tidbits, as well as my experience trying to follow along in the tutorial and how my own drawings turned out (like the one seen in the featured image).
On this episode of my interview podcast The Filmcraziest Show, I was joined by Edward Drake, the writer and director of his latest team-up with Bruce Willis, Cosmic Sin. The film is about seven rogue soldiers who launch a pre-emptive strike against a newly discovered alien civilization in the hopes of ending an interstellar war before it starts. We chat all about the weapons in the film, our favourite Stephen King novels, what it was like working with Bruce Willis and their continued collaboration, and much more. I’ve included the podcast and YouTube versions (as well as two bits of our conversation).
