    Daniel Harmon began his journey into animation as an internet marketer, but not just any internet marketer. He was part of the team that created the viral campaign for the Orabrush (yes, Scott was persuaded, bought one, and still loves it!), and they became the Harmon Brothers, the master marketers behind Poo-Pouri, Squatty Potty, Purple Mattress, Vid Angel, Click Funnels and so many other smash hit products. The Harmon Brother's love of story led them to play a role in the groundbreaking distribution of the massive hit The Chosen, and Daniel's next hopeful hit, The Tuttle twins is using the same model, with millions raised in investment crowdfunding. All of that, and he is a humble, hilarious guy.

    #18 - Jeff Bell (Producer) on the Directing Animation Livecast

    Interview by Scott Wiser: A Director, Animator on projects for DreamWorks, Fox, and Indies. Creator of original feature-film pitches (in the form of self-published books and short films).  

    You may know Jeff Bell for his CG and VFX work on ‘Everyone’s Hero,’ ‘Hoodwinked 2’ or ‘Ozzy.’ But he’s also a software developer; he was part of the team that brought Maya to market in the 90s. These worlds collided when his company Tangent Animation was producing Next Gen, the first Netflix feature done entirely in Blender. Jeff was tired of running into the same old problems in the animation pipeline – so the team developed its own solution called LoUPE.  

    The company has adapted LoUPE for mass release ever since, collaborating with major software companies and letting top studios like Island of Misfits put it to work. LoUPE stands apart because it was developed by animators, for animations. Jeff’s mission to help artists and studios use the latest technology to scale and compete at a global level – and tell better stories with more on the screen. Following last week’s launch in AWS Marketplace, Loupe was featured in Animation, AWN, and Cartoon Brew.
