ANIMATION MEDITATION is a new podcast with animation director and independent animation history nerd Jeff Chiba Stearns where he talks to famous animators and illustrators about their films and creative process. Coined by Jeff as the animation method he used to create his Emmy nominated animation Yellow Sticky Notes, 'animation meditation' is the process of creating a straight ahead animated stream of consciousness through a combination of image and text.
The first hour-long episode features the "King of Indie Animation" Bill Plympton! While in Vancouver for SPARK ANIMATION 2019, Jeff sat down with Bill for an in-depth chat about Bill's academy award nominated films, being friends with Matt Groening, being a dad, working with Kanye West and how Bill built one of the most successful careers in indie animation history!
More episodes will be released throughout 2020 including episode 2 with Marv Newland!
