Animation Podcast 032 - The “Unofficial” Tangled Animators’ Audio Commentary
The UNOFFICIAL Tangled Animator’s Commentary made by the biggest group of animators you will probably ever hear in one room. Here’s the plan: queue up your copy of Tangled to frame 1 of the actual film (before the castle logo) and hit pause. When we count down 3-2-1-PLAY, you un-pause and hear us talk through the film.

Customer ReviewsSee All
These are amazing and a genius idea. I can't thank you enough! However I'd like to ask that for any new pt 1 and pt 2 interviews be uploaded in reverse order as iTunes seems to be playing them backwards for me. But thanks!!! :D
I wish there was an option for 6 stars
These podcasts are an invaluable resource. You get to listen to some of the greatest animators of our time talking about how they got to where they are. Clay and his guests discuss animation technique, theory, and philosophy. It's basically like sitting in the Disney lunch room. I have listen to all of these twice and will continue to review them in the future. They are the kind of resource that you continue to dig more out of with each listen.
Love the show. Wish we got one every month, but the podcasts we have been given are so inspiring and can be listened to over and over. Thanks Clay!!
