After chatting with Nathan for the past three years about his animation projects I finally got a chance to meet him and his brothers in person at the Ottawa International Animation Festival this year. We took advantage of that to set up a short interview to chat about the what it was like for them to pitch their shows at OIAF, their experience at the Festival Stop Motion Montréal (which they were at the week before), their recent STORYHIVE win for "Soggy Flakes", and what advice they would give to younger versions of themselves.
You can check out more of their work at their website:

And I've embedded a couple animateed shorts from the Affolter brothers below so you can get a chance to check out their work.
