PODCASTS - Guys with Pencils interviewing Nick Cross, Marlo Meekins, and Rex Hackelberg

This is a candid shot I took while Andrew Murray and Adam Hines (Guys with Pencils) were interviewing Nick Cross, Marlo Meekins, and Rex Hackelberg at TAAFI 2012.  I discovered the Guys with Pencils podcast this fall while I was filming Destination Fear for the Travel Network.  Their podcast is what I would listen too while I animated and decompressed after each shoot day.  I've listened to every episode so far and I have to say these two are talented interviewers and their style just keeps getting better and better.

I think the most important thing is that although they each have strong opinions about art, games, and animation they've stayed impressively positive throughout their entire run so far.  They've also been consistently producing episodes each week which I, as a fan, very much appreciate.

I posted this photo because I feel it really epitomizes what I love most about the Canadian animation industry, down to earth and incredibly talented people finding time, and a quiet nook, at a busy animation festival, to record a candid podcast about what they love, art & animation.
