Animation as Art or the Art of Animation?

Host Daniel Durning speaks with two artists working at the forefront of 3D animation.

Jeffrey Lerer is currently working on a 3D animated film, Manuscript Fragments Found at the Gilbert Hotel, based on his novel of a collection of vignettes written in 26 fragments (a-z), and presented as a series of three dimensional computer animations. Using painterly composition and color, this filmmaker and animator brings to life the strange characters from his 1950's noir flophouse with the finesse, beauty and camera methodology reminiscent of Hitchcock.

Michael Ferraro is a founding father of 3D animation, from his work on Tron to being one of the original partners of Blue Sky Studios, the Academy Award-winning 3D animation house that produced Ice Age and Robots.
