That Character Animator program really does seem interesting... and one by Adobe no less! Expected it to be some small spin-off-no-one-ever-heard of thing. Will definitely look into that.
Also would invite GetMadz to join up at the place that really started it all too, NG, right here. Ain't no place like it! Maybe signing up for an NG account could be a pre-requisite for being in these podcasts? ;) He/you (if you're reading this) seem(s) like a pretty creative dude.
I like the idea of bringing in new perspectives too. And new people. Also feels like the YT community might be more like the lunch room that GetMadz describes, whereas NG is that small, enclosed circle where everyone knows everyone, and bonds overtime, overcoming mutual hardships and all those trials and tribulations that both smaller platforms and creators face. So y'know, that account's just a click away...
Anyhow: great convo. Looking forward to more of these, though hope you keep inviting certified NG peeps too. There's so many I'd like to hear here. Deathink, Sabtastic, Tom(noneedtotypeoutlastname), Cheetoh, ClockworkPixel, TheComet, ZebraHumor, TylerLandis, EdBound, MrNannings, MarkAnime, SouljaBoy, KarlSia, MLeth, SomeonesEx, Ant0on, ChazDude, artistunkown, MistyEntertainment, d-z, Deprixon, RadioTubeClock, Pop-Tart, SBC (and other clocks), Kol-Belov, BrentHeMan, Jaime-R, Kel-chan and sucho just to name a few. If for some reason you felt you were running out of interesting people. ;)
Keep up the good works!
