Animators Resource Interview – Darryl Purdy and David Hubert – Full Interview

Been a while for an interview and this one has been sitting in the queue for bit now. Sorry for the delay, but I am happy to share the latest interview I have up.

This is my full interview with Darryl Purdy and David Hubert, two veterans of the animation industry chat about the challenges in both film and games. Darryl then does a quick breakdown of how he approaches some of his creature animation. Sorry about the slight echo early on.

Thanks again to Darryl Purdy and David Hubert for a great interview and giving up their time to give back to the community!

Enjoy!
