Ep-32: Director and Head of Story (Space Jam) Alex Orrelle
Updated: Sep 30
Shortly after leaving Pixar as an animator on The Incredibles, Alex Orrelle moved to Israel and founded CREW 972, an animation studio focusing on character animation. But his creative journey took him for a spin around the globe, serving as animation director on Yogi Bear, co-director on Condorito and head of story on Space Jam: A New Legacy.
The Post Post podcast is finally back after a long hiatus. I always enjoy my conversations with Alex Orrelle and this episode will demonstrate why - he's an amazing storyteller and has a great wealth of knowledge and experience to share. This conversation took us back to the early days of both of our creative journeys and through the various lessons we've learned over the years. There's really something in it for anyone - and I can't wait to hear your thoughts.
