The AFA Podcast: Episode 60- With Ed Hooks

We have a very special episode of the podcast this week, as Rachael, Chris, Dan and Yvonne are joined by Ed Hooks. For the uninitiated Ed is very respected in the animation community, having written, talked and taught on the subject of acting in animation for close to 20 years and is perhaps best known for the book Acting For Animators.

Ed talks with us about his work, but also we discuss the topic of adult animation- and the challenges of appealing to an adult audience. We even found time to talk about the possibilities of storytelling through Virtual Reality!

Please note: Our recording this time was plagued by technical glitches. Sadly, the audio quality isn't perfect but we hope it won't spoil your enjoyment, as this is a fascinating conversation!
