Director Jed Hathaway returns to the podcast with more wondrous stop motion filmmaking stories. I visit the set of his So Cal Honda shoot, where Jed and his producer Rosa Tran had over a half dozen miniature stages going at once. Jed leads an army of misfit animators, all specialists at the top of their game, to make holiday cheer. His work puts a fresh twist on a nostalgic style we all love. (Think the “Rudolph The Red Nosed-Reindeer” Christmas specials.) This chat is a very informative peek behind the stop motion curtain.
Check out his Honda work and from earlier this year, animated spots for Oreo S’mores that I adore.
