We're back with part 2 of our interview with Kate Sullivan, the magical Guardian behind the wheel of fan-animations, Moon Animate Make-Up 1 and 2!
In part 1, Kate touched on what her re-animated project process was like, the state of 2D animation, what makes a great demo reel, and what hustling really looks like.
Now, here in part 2, Kate dives into more detail about:
- her project management process for Moon Animate Make-Up 2, from breaking down the episode, to dishing out the work, to putting it all together
- discusses the importance of fan creations and making the transition from fan to professional
- we also go over the importance of timing for your animated project, career, and any aspect of life
- and, of course, the one most vital thing she thinks a DIY animator needs!
We should mention Kate's audio gets iffy in places - her WiFi and Skype were having a tough time, BUT we so enjoyed Kate’s active energy and love of Sailor Moon, and her optimism and excitement for what the animation community will create next shines through.
In the name of Moon Animate, let’s start part 2!
