That Gaston really was a dreamboat
In episode 69 of the Skwigly Animation Podcast we welcome back Graham Annable, Oscar-nominated co-director of LAIKA's 2014 feature The Boxtrolls. As well as his involvement with LAIKA Studios, Graham is also the creator of the comic/animation series Grickle, sustained through Patreon. His prior work includes stints at Telltale Games, LucasArts, Nickelodeon and Disney.
Also discussed in this episode: Oscar wins, Beauty and the Beast quasi-controversy, the pleasantly surprising look of the Duck Tales reboot, shows best left forgotten, the cancellation of Tim Minchin’s Larrikins and LAIKA CEO Travis Knight’s surprising new career direction.
Listen to it, gosh darn you:
