Love your show
I have learned so much from your show and it's encouraging. I wish I had followed my dream to the animation world but somehow I feel stuck. Hope to still grow as an artist. You guys are blessed. Btw if you walk by my cubicle it would be full of sketches because it's something I have to do.
My favorite podcast!
Long time, happy listener of my favorite animating twins!

I can’t wait for every new episode that comes out and am so grateful that they both share their experiences on this platform. Definitely a must-listen for anyone whose an artist, movie lover and especially interested in the world of animation!
Best Animation Industry Podcast
Tom and Tony are the best!!! I listen to their podcast as I chip away at my own animated short film. It’s so inspirational to hear tips from others in the animation industry as well as just to listen in on their brotherly banter. As a Christian, I appreciate how they are willing to talk about their faith and the role it plays in their work. I seriously want to enroll in the animation program at Lipscomb University just so I can have the chance to hang out with these two. Thanks, Bancroft brothers, and keep animating from the heart!
