Ep.17 – ‘An Animated Discussion’

It’s a very animated discussion this week on The Punch Up, as the chaps are joined by our very first special guest, Vancouver-based animator Haley McNamara! Providing her own unique insight, Haley takes us into the world of professional animation, revealing a few surprises along the way…

On the review front we take a look at Pixar’s latest releases, The Good Dinosaur, Sanjay’s Super Team, and Inside Out, as well as the astounding French picture, The Little Prince.

We also look forward to future animated features coming out next year, including Disney’s Zootopia, Pixar’s Finding Dory, and the it-could-be-great-could-be-meh, The Life of Pets.

Review: Sanjay’s Super Team (Pixar Short Film)

Pixar’s latest short (and accompaniment to The Good Dinosaur) is a divine masterpiece of animation.

"Sanjay's Super Team" Comes to the Con — Director Sanjay Patel and producer Nicole Grindle are taking Pixar Animation Studios' new short to San Diego's Comic-Con International next month for its North American premiere and a peek behind the scenes of the production process. The Super Story Behind the Pixar Short "Sanjay's Super Team," slated for Thurs., July 9 at 11 a.m. in the Indigo Ballroom, Hilton Bayfront, reveals the unique inspiration for this incredibly personal film that features superheroes like never before. The short debuts in U.S. theaters in front of Disney-Pixar's "The Good Dinosaur" on Nov. 25, 2015.
