In the latest episode of the Skwigly Animation Podcast we take a look at the recent Oscar nominated animated shorts and features and ponder the plight of the animated sitcom. Also discussed are Mosaic Films‘ recent Animated Minds project and the value of animation as a documentary storytelling medium, for which we’re joined by Mike and Tim Rauch of Rauch Bros. Animation who recently wrapped up their contributions to the ongoing StoryCorps series, a collection of animated oral histories from around the US. The films, which have resonated with audiences worldwide, explore a wide gamut of human experience and boast an array of impressive artists including Jim Smith, Stephen deStefano and Bill Wray.
