Working for the Foo Fighters - A Chat with Bomper Studios
Imagine if you had the chance to work with one of the greatest bands of the modern age. How hard would you work to get there...and what did it take? Bomper Studio’s Emlyn Davies and Josh Hicks challenged their team to learn how to produce high-end character-driven work, and that effort directly led to a contract...with the Foo Fighters.
From GSG to Rocket Lasso with Chris Schmidt
Chris Schmidt is a really good 3D artist. He was one half of the wacky Greyscalegorilla team back in the early days of the site, and quickly gained a reputation for his MacGyver-like ability to rig things up in the most clever ways imaginable. Some of his tutorials were instant classic, and helped many artists learn their way around Cinema 4D. Now, we're talking to him about his new site, Rocket Lasso, and the future of 3D art and design. Check it!
We Need to Talk About NFTs
Even if you don't pay close attention to industry news, you've likely heard of NFTs. Crypto art, led by a growing list of pioneering artists, is revolutionizing not only our industry but art as a whole. However, there have been some valid concerns raised over the viability of the market and the environmental impact of cryptocurrency. That's why we gathered to grapple with this topic and share our observations...plus what we’ve been hearing from artists and studios.
From Concept to Reality with Max Keane
What do you do when you get a great idea? Not just something you enjoy thinking about, but a brain worm that burrows deep and won't let go. Even when we're confident that we have a handle on something great, the road ahead can be so daunting that we just give up. Today we're joined by Max Keane, creator of the new Netflix animated series Trash Truck, to hear about his journey from concept to reality.
Getting Real About Reels with Laura Porat

We're getting real about reels and talking to Laura Porat, a freelance motion designer with a seriously impressive client list. In this conversation, we cover her most recent (and magnificent) reel, which was hyper-focused on the work she wants to find in her future.

Sparked an interest I didn’t know I had
Prior to discovering this podcast I didn’t even know motion design was a thing - I only started listening to this podcast by chance after I randomly stumbled upon an episode with an artist I follow.
Fast forward a few weeks and I’ve now listened to about 90% of all episodes, and I have developed a burning desire to get into the motion graphics world. Really looking forward to taking my first course - from The School of Motion!
Favourite motion graphics podcast!
Recently started listening and its so refreshing to hear from the multiple guests on the show because it gives so much invaluable info/wisdom/knowledge. Really appreciate this podcast!
Treat your ears and school your brain.
I can't praise Joey and team more at School of Motion they really do an incredible job at providing on point content! Keep it coming guys I need more! The podcast is a fantastic asset for any motion designer or creative and I highly reccomend you tune in and subscribe. I've been in the industry for over 5 years now and studied design at University but I can honestly say I've learnt just as much again from listening to this podcast. I wish I had this before I got into the industry as it's second to none. It's also a brilliant way of keeping in touch with the community and discovering new talent and much more.
