I&PG-089, Kate Moran, Freelance Writer and Production Secretary

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast- a look at animation through the women who make it!

Hosted by Cassie Soliday.

---

Today's guest is Kate Moran, freelance writer and production secretary. She worked her way from barista to temp positions to finally production secretary on beloved Disney shows like Gravity Falls and Mickey’s Roadster Racers where she’s often found in the writers room! Among many topics, we discuss how she doesn’t wait for an invitation or permission to create, why it’s so important to be a midnight donatello (also the name of her podcast about creativity!), and how kindness is a strength.

This is another installment of our "Parenting in Animation" series.

Hosted by Katya Bowser and Cassie Soliday.

From India to Los Angeles, Pragya Tomar has been working in CG animation at places like Disney Feature and Nickelodeon for over a decade.  As a working parent, she’s open about the successes, struggles, and what she likes to call, “happy compromises.” We discuss how she makes creativity a bonding experience with her daughter, how she is plotting a career change into writing for TV and children’s books, and how to ask for what you need from your production to live your best family life at home.

I&PG-087, Laura Hohman, CG Texture Supervisor

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast- a look at animation through the women who make it!

Hosted by Cassie Soliday.

---

Today's guest is Laura Hohman, CG texture artist and supervisor. Originally shooting for the stars and dreaming of being an astronaut at NASA, Laura pivoted to working in 3D still fueled by her affinity for physics. She got her first job on Nickelodeon’s 2012 “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and she has been texturing ever since. We discuss the ebb and flow of CG and 2D in the TV Animation Industry, how she supervises a team, how to use bad advice to motivate you, and much more.

I&PG-086, Mary Bellamy, Author and Illustrator

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast- a look at animation through the women who make it!

Hosted by Cassie Soliday.

---

Today's guest is Mary Bellamyauthor, illustrator, and animator! With over 14 graphic novels and 1,000 comic pages under her belt, Mary is the epitome of a self-made independent publisher with her titles such as Faux Facts and Ah, Heck! This drive to produce a huge body of work has brought Marvel and My Little Pony knocking on her metaphorical door. We discuss how she boiled her creative process down to a science, how she was tired of the typical girl tropes in stories so she created her own graphic novels to show what she wishes she could have read when she was growing up, and how she speaks into her own pain by creating honest and authentic work in hopes of connecting with others so they know to keep hope alive.
