will becher

Just listened to Will Becher‘s interview at BasicBrainHeart podcast. It was great fun to listen to his story and know the whole process that went before he became an Aardman’s animator. It’s made me remember of all the plasticine dolls I did as a kid, and the videos during at school’s recess when I finally had a camera cellphone hahaha.

In addition he spoke the tips he received from about what people at Aardman was looking for in the show-reel:

Make a film that’s very simple
Make a film that has less than six minutes
Make a film that show your strengths, don’t try to do it all

things to remember:

Share something small, every day

“Where you are in your process will determine what that piece is. If you’re in the very early stages, share your influences and what’s inspiring you. If you’re in the middle of executing a project, write about your methods or share works in progress. If you’ve just completed a project, show the final product, share scraps from the cutting-room floor, or write about what you learned.”
