As part of their website redesign, the New Yorker has made every article they’ve published since 2007 available for free on their website. This release of material includes some longreads about animated films and filmmakers, some of which are better than others. The recent profile on Paul Debevec is particularly interesting if you want insights on where animation is headed. If these whet your appetite, remember that subscribers to the magazine get the full archives, including their 2005 profile on Hayao Miyazaki and the 1975 profile of Donald Duck’s voice Clarence Nash.
