This Holiday season we celebrate with our close friends. We look back on the holidays of yesteryear. The Holidays mean Christmas specials, and Christmas specials mean animation. You're going to hear from a dozen animators talk about their favorite Christmas animation moments.  So grab some hot cocoa, a plate of cookies and your sketchbook. Take some time this season to chill out and spend the Next hour with us shooting the shit.

We have returned to the lovely Bento Miso facility to cover the DMG (Dames Making Games) Toronto event this week.
This event was a follow up of the awesome work that was done at the No Jam event. The No Jame event was held for 20 women to make games during DMG Toronto's first-ever game jam for new game makers.
At the DMG event we got to meet and greet all the game makers and talk to them on why this event is so important to the participants.

Former classmate and all around nice guy Kevin Parry joins us this week around the mic to discuss his career within the past 2 years. What's really interesting about Kevin's work to date is his ability to utilize social media to share his work with people from all around the globe. This episode goes into talk about his thoughts on digital distribution and the pros and cons of festival submissions. This is a great episode especially for any of our student listeners if you are looking to maximize your films potential once you graduate.

This week we take a little trip back down memory lane. After working for almost 3 years now in TV production, the boys take a moment to recap their experiences. They go as far back as their last year in school and discuss the process of making a short film for the first time. It's a really interesting perspective to have after working professionally for someone else. Going back and analyzing the student films allowed them to make calls they never would have made as students.
