Cameron Miyasaki...well, he's just so coolLas t night on Strut your Reel we had a live Q and A with Cameron Miyasaki, Pixar intern turned superstar. He's done some of my favorite scenes in the incredibles, the one where Helen and Violet are having a hear to heart outside the cave, he's become known for animating the more quite sublte acting moments. The part where Violet puts on her mask for the first time, and he whole posture changes, she can see it, her future...it's in her blood. Well, just Wow!
The Q and A was great I asked Cameron if he ever feels the need to have "real actors" act out reference material for him? And he replied that he doesn't ever get other people to help him with his reference, not the same way they did back in the DIsney days at least. I guess it's more goofy reference of myself...if it's good enough for Cameron...
Not only was Cameron gracious enough to answer all our live questions with his busy Pixar schedule, he is also pulling triple duty over at AM where he is our "Featured Mentor" We get a whole forum dedicated to asking him as many questions as we can think of. This is a great new feature of the school since our animation appetites ate voracious, there is already a never ending stream of questions waiting for him...thanks so much for doing this for us Cameron.
As if that wasn't enough, after the end of the Q and A session with Cameron, Strut Your Reel posted it's new interview with the Kit Kat Man himself, AM's own Bobby Beck!
I have to go lie down now, I'm having ninja overload.
