    Cinematic Revolution of the French New Wave with Richard Neupert

    Cinematic Revolution of the French New Wave with Richard Neupert

    Bazin. Truffault. Godard. Varda.  What do they all have in common? They were part of the French New Wave. What are they doing on this podcast? Plenty. All creatives can learn from the the audacity of their convictions that created a movement that changed cinematic history. The French New Wave was a revolutionary force that should never have happened. When the movement started, it was unwanted, it was resisted, it was criticized, it was in French, it had every reason to fail on the world stage. Yet it changed the cinema, and it’s impact is still being felt today. 

    My guest in this episode has written one of the most lively, insightful and readable books on the French New Wave, titled A History of the French New Wave. He’s the Wheatly Professor of the Arts at the Univerity of Georgia, teaching film history and theory. His name is Professor Richard Neupert.

    The Steadfast Animator - Phil Lockerby Part 2

    The Steadfast Animator - Phil Lockerby Part 2

    Phil Lockerby has managed to carve out a long and successful career as a character animation outside of Hollywood. And though he has long distinquished himself in animation, he still works hard to grow in his craft, and can find child-like joy in the little things of his work. Phil is also one of the rare animators I know who has made an effort to learn about acting, and I can tell you from working with him, it shows.

    Recreating History in Painting with John Stobart

    Recreating History in Painting with John Stobart

     I've always admired people who do one thing in life and they do that one thing well. It's even more admirable when they still have that same spark of passion in their twilight years. Maritime painter John Stobart is just such a man.

    In this episode John talks about the development of his career from that first painting sale he made as a student at the Royal Academy. John gives us a window into the meticulous research process he goes through in the creation of his historic maritime port scenes. He also talks about his Worldscape video series he produced for PBS.

    One of John most admirable achievements is the established The Stobart Foundation, which is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help support emerging artists who paint from life. You can find more information about the Stobart Foundation, and apply for a grant, at stobartfoundation.org.
