Ep. 079: The making of One Small Step with TAIKO Studios – Part I

One Small Step tells the story of Luna, a Chinese American girl who dreams of becoming an astronaut. In part one of our interview with the masterminds behind TAIKO Studios, the company behind this amazing short, we interviewed studio Founder and CEO Shaofu Zhang, Head of Development and Co-Director Andrew Chesworth, and Art Director and Co-Director Bobby Pontillas. Join them as they share their experiences from working at Disney Animation Studios to embarking on the journey to bring an animated short to life! And join us next week when we feature CG Supervisor and Rigger Joy Johnson and Head of Pipeline and Technical Animator Andrew Jennings!
