First interview of the podcast series! We interview Hannes Rall at 180 Maiden Lane in NYC.

Hannes Rall is an Independent Animation Director. He is also Associate Professor at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Hannes has shown his work in exhibitions and screenings around the world. He has been an invited speaker for workshops and conferences in more than 20 countries and over 400 film festivals worldwide. His research is focused on exploring adaptation methodologies of traditional Asian art forms for animation and on inter-cultural collaborations.
