I&PG- 053, Sexual Harassment: An Overview & Pep Talk

A brief overview of Sexual Harassment and pep talk for moving forward as it relates to the Animation industry (and honestly, most industries!)

And although this episode focuses on telling someone, it is the victim's choice on whether or not they will report the incident or treatment. Just know that there are resources available to you.

This episode is raw, you will hear my hand holding the audio recorder as well as hear me be uncomfortable, laugh awkwardly, be pissed, and other emotions.

I recorded and re-recorded this a few times as well as ran it by friends and peers. I gathered information about Sexual Harassment and Abuse from the links gathered below and the rest of my advice/thoughts have been formed and influenced by the active discussion in our community along with my personal feelings and experience.

If you’d like to dig in deeper, here is further reading…

About Harassment in Hollywood and other workplaces:

*Hear Daley read her letter on the ScriptNotes podcast:

*And then hear her discuss sexism and the post-Weinstein era further with ScriptNotes’s John August and Craig Mazin.

Jess and Vicki from the Grilled Cheese & Gin podcast discuss the #metoo movement through their own experiences. Along with the outpouring of stories from my friends and colleagues, this was the cherry on top of my week where I cried. It’s not ok. And you are not alone.

I&PG- 052, Anand Duncan, Illustrator & Designer

Today, we’re joined by Illustrator and Designer, Anand Duncan for an in-depth conversation about creativity, family, the freelance life, her passion for VR (or Virtual Reality), and the space where art meets science and tech. Currently, a prop designer on “Teen Titans Go!” she’s worked in both design and animation on projects for Warner Brothers, Disney, Cartoon Network, Renegade Animation, and Nintendo! 

She’s even created a short animated series called “Gamma Girls” about two smart and goofy tech teens in space. I’m sure you’ve already noticed a common theme- for Anand, there are no limits to what she can do with her art.

I&PG- 050, Sabrina Alberghetti, Storyboard Artist

At 9 years old, Sabrina Alberghetti saw “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” and she knew animation was for her. Now, she’s a storyboard artist with over 13 years of experience from working on shows like Ed, Edd, and Eddy, and My Little Pony- she has been known as the ambassador of the Bronies- and she’s drawn covers for the beloved Disney Afternoon comics.

We discuss storyboarding, what a storyboard artist can do that a show runner can’t, knowing when to take a break, and how it is about who you know, but more so, it’s about what you have to show them once you know that someone.

I&PG- 044, Mindy Johnson, Author of “Ink & Paint: The Women of Walt Disney’s Animation”

History is a puzzle told through many stories- there’s a handful of rock stars that shine brighter than the rest- even fewer of those rock stars are women.  Mindy Johnson, writer, historian, and the author of the upcoming book, “Ink & Paint: The Women of Walt Disney’s Animation”, is about to share the voices of hundreds of forgotten female artists who worked at the Walt Disney Studios from the earliest days when Lillian first met Walt to the hire of Bianca Majolie to help in moving away from gag-driven shorts to longer stories with heart to the introduction of CAPS and digital animation with The Rescuers Down Under.  We discuss why it’s important to know that although there are still glass ceilings to break in higher creative roles, we have a solid foundation to build upon and firecracker role models to look up to.
