The Art of Rigging and Animation with Jonah Austin

We wanted to slightly change gears here for this podcast and was able to do so with some time with our new WS1 rigging instructor Jonah Austin. Jonah discuss rigging from a unique perspective due to the fact that he is also an animator. Joined in the interview is one of our Feature Animation instructors and manager of our Games division, David Hubert.

Later in the show, we talk about our recent experience at CTN, our Dec. 8th live event, and some of our upcoming podcasts. View the rest of the article (i.e. 'Continue Reading') to see some CTN pics. Our Rigging workshop page.

the iAnimate introduction podcast

There are some great animation podcasts out there already, but with all that's going here at iAnimate and the amount of talent we have available (instructors, students, and co-workers), we figured "who wouldn't like to hear more?" This one is more or less a short introduction and what we'll be doing. Please leave feedback as to some questions you'd like to ask our guest we'll be interviewing in our next podcast (you have to listen to find out who).

The characters/rigs mentioned in the podcast (from left to right) are Legion, Brick, and Billy.
