No, Disney is good. Michael Eisner is = Satan. He is the reason Disney is going downhill. He was voted out of CEO, but still remains chairman (or vice versa).

Pretty cool, though. Bitey rocks!

I didn't know he was a Disney animator. It's pretty neat that he's submitting stuff to NG. That says a lot about NG.

Great interview! With a superb animator! And I didn't even make the connection that he worked on one of the books I've used...

Yeah, that was a well done interview. I liked his top 3 animations... well, I personally am not a HUGE fan of the Iron Giant (most likely because Cartoon Network runs it over and over and over in the summer and around Christmas time), but it's still a fun movie. The other two are amazing, and very different yet still amazingly similar. Makes me want to skip class and go get the DVDs now...

Great interview. Disney has the best animators in the world and it's good to see Adam Phillips realizing the potential of Flash animation.

Word!

I think the creator is a very highly skilled artist. I'd love to see more work from him...

Wait...he's a Disney animator?! Holy shit, NG has hit the big time. Um...since we're on the topic of the NG Mag and Wade hasn't answered my e-mail. What kind of stuff would you want people to write for their trial submissions Tom? I need to know as I want to write for the mag.

Dude, you're so right. I mean, it's getting harder and harder to do great stuff that deserve Front Page and all that.
I admit that this guy is a genious though, very good at flash.
As you said, competition is getting crazy, there are so so many good people at flash nowadays. So many "hits". And there are many more that just don't come to NG. I mean, I've seen that guy's website (it was a link from Adam Phillip's website) ... I mean, the guy is a total genius at backgrounds and all that.
Anyways.
And I'm like doing my little FBF animation ... alone ...

I loved that flash! I can't believe he was once a disney animator... no wonder it had awesome graphics! I really wish disney's movies were more fantasy like that (i mean lately). Bitey has great potential for a story.


Remember the good old days.

Adam is one of the absolute best animators I have EVER seen. He is a real good role model and I have learned a lot about him. He and his family have had many... interesting experiences. Overall he is a great enertainer.
