Taking a look back through the Pixar podcast archives, we came across a great in-depth interview with Bingham Young University Centre for Animation student Jenna Barton from 2013.
It’s a funny and insightful interview in which Jenna discusses her path to animation, her feelings on her course and her future ambitions. She speaks frankly about the learning curve and the imposter syndrome she felt during the course and offers some great advice on keeping your passion alive and avoiding burnout.
BYU Centre for Animation has received a lot of media recognition over the past few years due to its students successes in the animation world. Recent animation grad Lauren Taylor’s short film ‘Estefan’ won the 2012 Siggraph Computer Animation Festival “Best Student Project” award and the 1st place student Emmy award in the animation category.
Still from Estefan
