Episode 1: NEXT GEN writers and directors, Kevin R. Adams and Joe Ksander
Updated: Nov 9, 2018
NEXT GEN is a Netflix original animated feature film released earlier this month. In our inaugural episode, I'm joined by filmmakers Kevin R. Adams and Joe Ksander who wrote and directed this fresh and original film.
The release of NEXT GEN is an exciting step in their transformative journey from highly regarded CG animation artists and supervisors (at studios including #Disney and #ILM) to writing & directing duo of feature films.
It's a pleasure for me to witness and to enjoy the fruits of their hard work, having followed their journey for some time, and especially given their truly humble and generous personalities.
“If you're really impressed with your own stuff than you don't get better. But if you only hate your own stuff than you stop making things. So there's gotta be a constant tension between 'I'm not good enoguh' and 'I'm f-king awesome', and that's how you improve.”
