Our guests on this episode are Limbert Fabian and Brandon Oldenburg, two of the co-directors over at Moonbot Studios. Most recently they directed “The Scarecrow,” an idea-driven, computer-animated short commissioned for Chipotle that got over 7 million views in less than three months. On the podcast, the two directors discuss what makes Moonbot special and the importance of a sketchbook culture. They also discuss the making of “The Scarecrow” and the company’s Academy Award-winning short, The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore.
Toward the end of the interview is an interesting discussion about why tax incentives matter and how Louisiana Economic Development (LED) made it possible for Moonbot Studios to thrive.
