I'm Lucas Martell, an animation director and creator of "The OceanMaker" AMA!
My short bio: I've worked professionally in animation for 10+ years, doing just about every task involved with computer animation. My newest film "The OceanMaker" (Watch it and check out the Reddit thread) just came out this week, and was made by a small team of animators working on a Caribbean island. I'm also a co-owner of Mighty Coconut, a small animation studio in Austin, TX. I'm happy to answer anything that doesn't violate NDA's!
EDIT A few of the other team members are popping in and out to help field questions, so I'll call them out here. michaelcawood was our head of story, and henningKO was our lead animator.
EDIT Thanks for all the questions everyone! I have to hop offline for a bit, but feel free to keep asking questions and I'll do my best to respond to all of them. And be sure to tell your friends about OceanMaker!
