    Bonjour et bienvenue to the DIY animation show! We are back with part 2 of our interview with Kevin Gemin, aka KekeFlipNote, as well as our final episode of season four! Last time, we learned how the Nintendo DSi ignited Kevin’s passion for animating that still burns strong to this day. We were also given a detailed walkthrough of just how he makes his adorable, bouncing animations, as well as how to survive the naysayers and focus on what brings you joy. Today in Part 2, Kevin continues to enlighten us… - ...As he recounts how he came to work on the video series 'L'Odyssee de Klassik' - The most challenging episode of 'L'Odyssee de Klassik' and why - Tips for animating dance to music - Practices for supporting other artists online and protecting your own work - And the one most vital thing he thinks a diy animator needs!

    What do pigeons, baguettes, and a Nintendo DSi all have in common? Kevin Gemin, of course! AKA 'KekeFlipnote'! Hailing from France, Keke’s work overflows with joy and charm. It’s easy to recognize his work. Quite often, his animations feature adorably bouncy, dancing, happy animals, smiling and living their best lives in silly and sweet scenarios. On top of this, the aesthetic of his animations is completely unique. Using his trusty Nintendo DSi as his go-to tool, the final look of his animations is a semi-pixelated 2D affair, unable to be replicated using any other program outside of the FlipNote Studio app. If you ever need to put a smile on your face, just turn to Keke’s work. You’ll be grinning ear-to-ear in no time! In today’s interview, we learn… - “Why pigeons, foxes, and baguettes?” - How FlipNote Studio’s unique magic captured Keke’s heart - Exactly how Keke creates one of his gifs in FlipNote Studio… and it’s not as straight-forward as you’d think - How Keke makes his squash and stretch ‘jus

    Today we talk with story and background artist Thomas Wellmann, calling all the way from Germany! Thomas Wellmann wears many hats as an artist, being an illustrator, a background artist for Clarence and Summer Camp Island, a storyboard artist on Adventure Time, and an indie comics creator in his spare time! We were initially stoked to pick his brains just about making backgrounds for some of our favourite shows. But as we soon learned, and as you’ll soon hear, his wealth of experience lead to an enriching discussion on what it means to tell a visual story, whether through backgrounds, comics, or in the simplest of drawings. We loved his grounded, simple approach to his art, as well as his enthusiasm and curiosity towards making it, and we know you will too! So today in pt 1, we talk with Thomas about: - How he got to work on Adventure Time & Clarence… while still living in Germany - His favourite things that help him work effectively from home - His technical nuts & bolts process for creating backgroun

    We’re here with Writer, Director, and Creator Cinzia Angelini and Producer Andrea Emmes to discuss 'Mila', an incredible 3D short film raising awareness about children impacted by war. Cinzia has a personal connection with this short film - Mila is based on her mother’s own childhood experience of bombing raids in her hometown during World War II. With Andrea Emmes on board as Mila's producer, these two have become an unstoppable team that has grown to a world-wide production. A 350-volunteer, 35-country spanning, high-quality CG short film, Mila has thrived since 2011 with no studio backing and just a modest funding campaign to cover the film’s bare essentials. A community of volunteers, a few sponsors, many hours, and a whole lot of love made Mila possible.
