    Elenor Kopka

    This week I’m sitting down with one of my all-time favorite animators: Elenor Kopka. I’ve been a huge fan of Elenor’s work for years and years, so it was an absolute joy getting to finally speak with her about her process and take a peak behind the scenes into how she crafts her grainy and gorgeous worlds. We had a lot to talk about, so strap in and welcome back! :-) Recorded by Lije Morgan Edited by Lije Morgan Theme music by Point.Reyes Background music by Zack Dresher

    This week's interview is with someone who truly knows how to embody the natural playfulness in the medium of animation: Magda Kreps! I've been a fan of Magda's work for awhile now, and am particularly interested in her character animations and sense of the cartoon body. In this episode, we talk about her sense of character proportions and what it means to break away from traditional anatomy, the struggles of working digitally vs. physically, and so much more. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as I did getting to speak with Magda, and I definitely recommend checking out her work (@magda_kreps on Instagram) before listening!

I couldn’t be more excited to share our conversation with you today, and hope you enjoy listening as much as I did getting to speak with her!

    To kick off season 2, I had such a lovely chat with Yuval Haker: a multidisciplinary animator with a wealth of stories to share about his journey in discovering his artistic voice, finding one's footing in freelance, and so much more. I'm so excited to be back in the swing of things, and couldn't be happier to finally be sharing this episode with you. Find more of Yuval's work on Instagram as @yuvaroo!
