Interview with Bungie Principal Animator - Richard Lico

In our 31st podcast, we interviewed Bungie Principal Animator, Richard Lico. Richard was a Sr. Art Lead on Bungie’s recently anticipated title Destiny. This was Bungie’s first mutli-platform title release since having been exclusive with the Halo franchise, and Richard was a part of the project from its infancy. He was responsible for the overall character animation technology and working with the art director to set the animation vision on Destiny. He’s been in the game industry since 1999, and has a passion for animation and game design that definitely showed in the podcast!
