Example text

BS: Yes, I’ve been doing programming since I was a little kid. It’s played a part in all the filmmaking I’ve done as well. With most of the animated films I’ve made, I’ve started out wanting to show off a piece of software. It’s very tied together for me; my programming is always directed towards producing some kind of artwork. JK: How did you come up with the idea to develop your Rotopaint software? BS: I started off wanting to do a traditional rotoscoping approach, where I wanted to be able to take some video on a computer and step through it frame by frame and just draw on each frame.

When I was a kid in Elmira NY, I would go to the library and look up biographies, Who’s Who; there’s a certain point where the people became who they were supposed to be. I was always interested in that point of no return, where they became who they were.
