In an unprecedented move, Pixar Animation Studios today announced that they have acquired the Animation Fascination podcast and website. The venerable podcast will become the official podcast of Pixar and co-founders Marc Vibbert and Matt Quest will join the staff of Pixar Animation Studios.
It’s a Walt Disney Animation Top Ten episode, so who better to join Marc for this best of list other than Tom Fonss himself. Are any of your favorite films on either of their lists? Maybe… probably. But you can’t know for sure unless you listen.
Also discussed: Doctor Who, Rocky and Bullwinkle returning to the big screen, the 19 films that may or may not get nominated for a Best Animated Feature Oscar, and trailers for The Lego Movie, Maleficent, and Mr. Peabody and Sherman.
(Recorded on 11/24/13)
For the first time on the podcast we’re joined by an employee of DreamWorks Animation! Jessica Forer, a production coordinator at the studio joins us to co-host the entire episode as well as discuss her career.
Amongst things discussed are: Ms. Forer’s love of classic animation, the Mickey Mouse short “Get a Horse!”, and the closure of Pixar Canada.
