Frenzer Foreman Animation Forum #3: Richard O’Connor

Today on the Frenzer Foreman Animation Forum, New York studio owner Richard O’Connor drops by to talk animation. O’Connor started his career at R.O. Blechman’s studio The Ink Tank in the 1990s before launching his own studio Asterisk Pix. Today, he runs the commercial house Ace & Son Moving Picture Co. He discusses the challenges of working on ‘grim’ animated projects, the connection between Chelsea Clinton and animation pioneer J.R. Bray, and what makes a successful animation festival signal film.
