This chat features self-taught Turkish stop motion animator Özgürcan Özdamar.

A note about this chat is that Özgürcan Özdamar only speaks Turkish and Terry Ibele only speaks English, so Merve Çaydere, a set designer at Laika, has volunteered to translate back and forth in the interview.

In the chat Özdamar shares how he got his start working on commercials, then branched off to publish his own work on YouTube - receiving more than four billion views for his funny stop motion videos for kids.

Tune in to Özdamar, Çaydere, and Ibele to hear:

*How Özdamar has animated over 6,000 minutes of stop motion animation

*How much money Özdamar was making from YouTube on a monthly basis

*The next big project Özdamar is working on.
