    On the Sarah & Vinnie Secret Show. It’s not hard core 100% Transformers talk but there is a lot of it. High lights include him talking about Bay almost making people at ILM cry, fan sites and there impact on the movies and Devastator’s balls.

    Hey Friskypinewood,

    You just got a shout out on the podcast (WTF@TFW) for being the first non-podcaster to reply in this thread.

    And GogDog likes your belt buckle.

    :D 

    Good job!

    Shawns a really cool guy met him a few times while I was studying with animationmentor.com (he took me for a tour of ILM). Extremely talented, and genuine bloke. Great to hear him talking about his career and ROTF.

    Yes that's her. The radio station got a new manager who felt No Name didn't fit the target demographic and they let him go. Vinnie is actually Sarah's original co-host No Name replaced when Vinnie's drinking got out of control.

    But don't weep for No Name, he got a gig (right down the hall) at Live 105, there music is a better fit for him. KITS LIVE 105 The One & Only -San Francisco - No Name

    Bay has a very distinct eye on what he wants to see, and he'll make no distinction between junior animators and the guys that have been there for years, and will pull no punches. I heard stories from the first film along the lines of "make it not look like a piece of crap", and if you think of this as your first shot on the film, you've planned your shot, worked on your blocking (basic animation), and your looking at it thinking "yeah, this looks really good, Im ready to show this to Bay to get the concept OK'd" and you get a comment like that its gonna knock you. Its part of the industry though, you NEED to be able to take the crits, its the way you produce better work, and as Shawn says in the interview, your there to put THE DIRECTORS vision on screen. The shot in question in the first film is one of my favourites, the animator took the crit, went away, reanimated it, and knocked it out of the park.

    As much as it is too bad that some director would act like a douche, in the end harsh critism might be just what you need. Maybe you'll get so angry and be like "I'll show that bastard!" that you go back and create the best work you'v ever done, just to prove the guy wrong.

    Or you could go sit in a corner and cry.

    Working in the business is hard, because sometimes (read: alot) you will have to create something for somebody that is obviously the wrong choice, but hey, he's the one pulling the strings, and you get payed to work for him!

    That's the point where you will have to decide if that's what you want to be part of, or maybe go do something for yourself.

    You're asking for somebody to go listen to the podcast and write down what is said for you, instead of listening to it?....hmm...:)
