Live Q&A with Julian Grey - Combining Animation and Poetry
Julian Grey, co-founder and animation director at Head Gear Animation in Toronto, created several of the beautiful animations featured in Billy Collin's recent TED Talk. As Billy says in his Talk, "It took a long time to put animation and poetry together. But then again, it took us a long time to put the wheel and the suitcase together."
Are you curious about how these videos were created? Are there other poems you'd love to see animated? Do you want to know more about careers in animation? Post a question for Julian in the comment box below!
( and if you know an animator who would like to get involved with TED, please let us know! http://ed.ted.com/get_involved )
Closing Statement from Julian Grey
Thanks to all for your thoughtful questions.
I hope I was able to clarify the project a bit, how it came about and what went into it.
Of course many people were involved in the creation of these pieces besides myself.
From bouncing initial ideas around with other directors here and discussing the treatment with creatives at J Walter Thompson, to working with animators, prop and model builders, actors, composers and lighting people....
