Cartoon Brew is pleased to announce an expansion of our extraordinary editorial staff, which furthers our commitment to covering the wide range of ideas and issues that impact the animation community.
The three new writers will each cover specific beats related to their areas of expertise: Caleb Wood (top photo, middle), who has earned quite a name for himself as a filmmaker, will discuss the work of other independent animators, as well as ideas and processes that are relevant to contemporary indie animators. Stephen Persing (top photo, left), whose posts you may have already enjoyed on the site, will explore the intersection of animation and fine art, and wrestle with the ever-blurring line between animation and other artistic disciplines.
Colin Giles, our first Canada-based contributor, will lead our new educational-initiative Cartoon Brew-ED. Colin is an animation industry veteran who currently serves as a senior animation instructor at Vancouver Film School. The new Cartoon Brew-ED subsite will be a curated guide to valuable instructional and educational resources for today’s animation artist. For now, it will remain independent of the main site, and will be available exclusively at Facebook.com/AnimationTips and CartoonBrew.tumblr.com.
