Aural Favours

Two massive, simultaneous deadlines are kicking my sexy behind right now, so this one'll be brief. Just to say that April's Skwigly Podcast has gone up, with one day of the month left to spare.
Midst chat of Disney layoffs, LucasArts nostalgia and unexpected TV show cancellations Steve chats to Brian Cosgrove, one of the UK animation world's most important luminaries, as well as Kevin Schreck, director of "The Persistence of Vision", a documentary exploring Richard Williams and his doomed passion project "The Thief and The Cobbler".
Continuing in the vein of gifted youngsters chronicling troubled productions, I chat to Thad Komorowski, author of "Sick Little Monkeys" (the book I've championed previously, which tells the tumultuous story behind "The Ren & Stimpy Show").
We also have an update from Dan Greaves of Tandem on his Kickstarter success and a competition where you can win a copy of "The Art of Short Films", a fabulous collection of independent animated shorts artwork. Listen to the podcast for specifics on how to enter and get liking and sharing on our Skwigly Facebook page!

It's another frightfully busy period o'time for me at the mo so here are a couple of quick updates. Firstly episode 3 of the Channel Flip/HuHa! series "Wobble Box" went up recently if you'd like to show it some love. I may put up some production materials for the bits I did later on down the line but in the meantime see if you can guess which ones they are.
In the physical world, there's another upcoming CineMe event in Bristol this coming Monday (the 22nd). Amongst the fine films being showcased are my patchy little shorts "Ground Running" and "The Naughty List". The screening will be at The Birdcage, one of my preferred new-ish local venues, so that's a nice plus. Come along, why doncha!
