This week the Guys got to chat with their former professor Mark Mayerson. Back in March Mark did a lecture at the monthly Animatic TO series. His talk was titled "Don't Pitch To the Buyer, Pitch To the Audience". If you missed out on his talk, this episode will be sort of an epilogue on the points he had when it comes to pitching your concept.

Here's a link to a MovieBob video Andrew rambled on about regarding Hollywood & Destiny.

As the seasons change, so do the jobs. It's a fact of life having to work in this type of business. This week the Guys talk about the transitions that need to be made when adapting to a new job. Sometimes their are risks that have to be taken which can cause a lot of uncertainty. Other times there are periods where one job will end and another will start up and not a bit of effort was used to look elsewhere. It's just the way it goes...But it's not all serious business..Adam goes on a joyous recap of the film JASON X!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

WARNING: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS MORE HORSE BALLS THAN USUAL.
 
Katie Shanahan and J. Bone have joined us this week to talk about THEFT! specifically, Art Theft. Why Katie and J. you ask? Well because they are victims of having their own pieces of artwork stolen, traced and displayed without having any source credit to the original works or creators! This is a really interesting topic and we were very lucky to have such wonderful artists who can give their accounts as to what steps they took once they realized their work had been stolen.

You’ve never heard of Jason Reeves? … He  made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. duh! Well that's actually a lie..but Jason did work for George Lucas. Which is pretty damn cool. We got to talk with Jason recently about what it was like working for Lucas Arts in its final years before being bought by Disney. One of the really interesting aspects about his job was that Jason had already been working in the Toronto Animation scene for over a decade. So this was a pretty big move to uproot his family from Toronto to LA for a job. Have a listen as we dive into the aspects of what it took to make this move possible and the experiences he gained while working for Lucas Arts.
