Hi Reddit! It's Simpsons Director and filmmaker Mark Kirkland - here for my first AMA.
Here with my colleague Libby Ward (SneakyVarmint): 'Hi! I'm doing the typing, because I'm quick like a bunny!'
Excited to chat about the art of animation, creative colleagues (like Weird Al, Haskel Wexler & Ollie Johnston), and fascinating filmmaking. I'm the Consulting Director on the new animated comedy short: Techtopia. "The Finkelsteins, a family of out-dated gadgets, cast out of Techtopia by Gooog Inc, must find purpose again in the suburbs of Passé."
Make a pledge of $10 or more to the Techtopia Kickstarter, mention Reddit AMA in your backer note, and (as an add on) I'll mail you a signed postcard from my film The Moving Picture Co. 1914.
Time to call it a night. Thank you all for your smart questions and kind compliments! This has been a lot of fun for both of us. Hope you get a kick out of Techtopia, and my personal website. Looking forward to doing this again. Cheers! Mark & Libby :D
