Episode Eight: Eric Villency
Riding Into The New Year...
In 2020 we learned just how much we could accomplish without needing to put on a jacket and leave the house. Home became the office, gym, hangout, you name it—and for those working out at home, the Peloton designed by Villency Design Group became the optimal machine. Under Eric Villency's leadership, his namesake design group has grown to define 21st-century user-friendly ergonomics and style. Paula Wallace reunited with Villency during a virtual visit before a live audience of SCAD students. The two discuss Villency's future thinking expertise, how his business continues to evolve, and the impact of 2020. You'll also hear from SCAD industrial design senior Ani Asanga during the student Q&A.
Episode Seven: Bibhu Mohapatra
The Responsibility Of Creativity...
The lines of a Bibhu Mohapatra gown exude elegance and centuries of craftsmanship through the skilled hands of global artisans. For Mohapatra's upcoming spring collection, he's continuing his evening wear tradition and responding to client calls for luxury fashion for home events and smaller, more intimate gatherings. He's always kept his clientele close to his heart, and their loyalty has been earned through his years of dedication, humility, and expert eye. Mohapatra blends the east and the west with vibrant color schemes, traditional materials, and chic tailoring, and his international appeal is a firm testament to his global view. As a close friend to SCAD and brother to a SCAD alumnus, Mohapatra's been a considerate mentor to SCAD fashion students across our campuses. Today's interview comes from 2018 when Paula Wallace invited Mohapatra to spend a week with students studying at SCAD Lacoste in Southern France where the two took a moment to catch up on the SCAD student experience, the growth of Mohapatra's brand, and his strong sense of culture.
Episode Six: Monica Cook
The Gift Of Art...
SCAD alumna Monica Cook serves as an inspiration to fine artists studying across SCAD disciplines. Her consummate work ethic, creative integrity, and endless exploration are living proof of the fine artist's relevancy in the 21st century. Examples of her work grace the walls of the SCAD permanent collection, galleries, and private collections across the globe. Cook's scientific eye and love for experimentation results in truly singular and visceral creations. SCAD is proud to represent her work, and the work of hundreds of alumni, faculty, staff, and current students, through SCAD Art Sales and ShopSCAD. Both galleries allow private collectors the rewarding opportunity to support some of the most inventive artists creating today. In today's conversation, Paula Wallace reunites with Cook to observe the complexity of her latest work and celebrate all the ways Cook defines "SCAD hustle."
Episode Five: Jeremy Irons
The Artist In The Castle...
During the 2019 SCAD Savannah Commencement, the usual anticipation and celebration were heightened tenfold when one surprise guest entered from stage right, Jeremy Irons. In his incisive remarks, Irons encouraged the graduates to carry on the bold experimentation and curiosity go their university years, to create with full hearts, and never to forget their fellow artists. In 2020, Irons returned via Guests and Gusto to visit with Paula Wallace and SCAD students once more. Since his first visit, Irons garnered an Emmy nomination for his role in HBO's "Watchmen" and is starring alongside Diane Keaton in the soon to be released "Love, Weddings & Other Disasters." Throughout his life and career, Irons has remained a tactile artist and a steward for his many passions from gardening, to horses, to architecture. In today's episode, Paula Wallace catches up with Irons as the two explore his prowess on stage and screen, his triumphant restoration of Kilcoe Castle in Ireland, and his keen advice to students.
Episode Four: Glen Keane
A Giant Leap In Animation...
At the 2020 SCAD Savannah Film Festival, animation legend and friend of SCAD, Glen Keane, received a much deserved Lifetime Achievement in Animation award. The Oscar-winner and veteran artist is responsible for some of the most iconic cells of animation ever put on screen, from his decades at Disney to his independent career. In his newest film, Over the Moon, Keane collaborated with a team of Chinese artists to bring a traditional legend to vibrant life, and the film fast hit number one on the Netflix charts. Animation is SCAD's most popular degree program, and the outpour of excitement from students, faculty, and staff further exemplified Keane's rockstar status as an animation hero. Paula Wallace reconnected with Keane to discuss his latest triumph, his ability to harness inspiration from the world, and how animation continues to capture our hearts.
