EPISODE 064: Mark Osborne on the invisible things

“Here’s an idea of what this might be… let’s play.”

Our next episode goes to Mark Osborne. Mark Osborne is an animation film director. He directed The Little Prince, Kung Fu Panda, music videos for Coldplay and Weird Al, and the short films More and Greener. Lately he’s working on a trilogy film adaption of the epic comic book series Bone.

Listen to what Mark had to say about getting started in animation, the risks of being successful, creative control versus independence, the art of the pitch, the importance of a family-first approach, and all those essential things that are invisible to the eye. Subscribe on iTunes.
