Welcome to Cartoon Brew’s relaunched podcast, hosted by me, Cole Delaney. In each episode, I’ll revisit some of the month’s most interesting stories in the animation world, as covered on this website. I’ll speak to artists and filmmakers about their work, from the great themes that inspire them to the tools and materials they use day to day. My colleagues here at Cartoon Brew will sometimes join me to dig deep into industry trends.
Listen to the latest episode below:
In this episode, I interview Joe Mateo, director of the Oscar-qualified Skydance Animation short film Blush, which is now available on Apple TV+. The story stems from Mateo’s personal experience of loss, and the way he turned this into art is a focal point of our conversation. The film’s message is clear: surrounding yourself with people you love and trust is the only way to get through these difficult moments.
