Justin Rasch is an animator, director, and mover who has worked on projects such as The Spongebob movie, Coraline, Alien Xmas & more.
In episode 58 he discusses the impact of his athletic and movement practice on his animation, his story of becoming a high-level artist / animator and mastering his craft, as well as a deep dive into the positive and negative affects of social media – something he has personally experienced amassing nearly 1 million followers on Tiktok over the past year. Yes, he want from no social media to an insane following really really fast!
The amount of work that goes into his animations is absolutely mind blowing and you’ll respect the movies you watch much more after this interview! His passion is equally inspiring – no matter if you know anything about animation or not – there is an element of connection his passion will bring you that you can take into any element of your own life. I really enjoyed chatting with Justin and learning more about his journey and I’m sure you will too!
