    09/05/2017 Duración: 01h04min

    Welcome to Episode 52 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with Allan McKay, founder of Catastrophic FX. Allan has done visual effects for loads of blockbuster movies, including Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Star Trek Into Darkness, 2012, Superman Returns, and Looper (a personal favorite of mine.) We talk about how a visual effect goes from conception to the final product that you see on screen, how the creative process works, and why visual effects production is moving all over the world. The latter topic is addressed in this recent New York Times article (which I reference in the interview) – there’s a race to the bottom which is costing lots of VFX artists their jobs, so we spend quite a bit of time talking this through.

    24/10/2016 Duración: 01h05min

     Welcome to Episode 48 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with cartoonist, lawyer, and advocate Stu Rees. “Everyone knows in their heart of hearts that they shouldn’t, but they use the words ‘fair use’ as a defense in their own mind.” This episode further explores copyright law and fair use issues with lawyer and cartoonist Stu Rees. As a practicing lawyer and professional cartoonist, Stu has much to say on the issue of copyright law, fair use, and artists’ rights. Stu began his legal career investigating the contracts between newspaper cartoonists and major print syndicates, and his passion for protecting up-and-coming artists’ rights is stronger than ever. We talk about copyright law and fair use as it applies to cartoonists and artists in general. We even do a little bit of “fair use roleplay” while we discuss the use of online images. Like previous entrepreneurial guests, Stu basically created his own path by “filling a void” that was needed in the marketplace, so he’ll fill us in on that j

      Welcome to Episode 47 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with singer-songwriter Anya Marina. We’ll hear how writing songs in middle school ultimately led to hosting radio shows and hearing her songs on hit shows like Grey’s Anatomy. Anya fills us in on singing for different bands, smoking cloves outside the coffee shop, and a little bit about the attempt to write a memoir. Although the memoir may not have worked out, the music career did. Anya is very open about the ups and downs of her life and the practical realities of surviving as a well-known but non-superstar artist. How does she go from project to project, and what’s next for this talented musician? Bonus: stick around for the end to enjoy a song from Anya’s latest album, Paper Plane: “Ordinary Dude.” This and so much more with Anya Marina.

    Welcome to Episode 43 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with Comic-Con fan, blogger, fashion designer for Hero Within, and foster parent Tony Kim. “Ultimately we believe that everyone has a hero within themselves. We all have the capacity to lead and inspire and save, and to be a source of inspiration for others.” Tony talks about growing up, and his relationship with comic-book superheroes. We get first-hand insight into the unique personal and cultural identity issues associated with minorities who “go nerd.” Tony talks about how his identity issues strengthened his relationship with comics, drove him toward his current successes, and reinforced his beliefs. We’ll also discuss the Comic-Con culture and how it has changed over the years; bloggers; the need for heroes; fostering and adoption; and the fascinating relationship between orphans and superheroes.

On this episode, I speak with clinical psychologist, cosplay enthusiast, and life-long Batman fan: Dr. Andrea Letamendi. “It’s important for us to see mental health representation from the point of a superhero experiencing that psychological struggle, but also from the perspective of mental health providers who could be demonstrating an accurate and positive portrayal of mental health delivery." Today’s talk is with clinical psychologist Dr. Andrea Letamendi. Andrea is not merely a psychologist; she’s a lover of all things comics and superheroes, a cosplay enthusiast, and a tremendous resource into the mind of a superhero. Andrea discusses a number of interesting topics related to identity, the ego, mental health, and trauma. Her experience and training as a mental health professional allow her to make psychoanalytic insights into the lives of people and fictitious characters alike.

    Welcome to Episode 41 of Products of the Mind. On this episode, I speak with Charles Brownstein, Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. “It’s important to be able to disagree and offend…Its more important to have the opportunity to be wrong or to have the opportunity to be offended than to go through life where nothing challenges or nothing has a rough edge. “ Free speech and censorship are the topics of today’s episode. Charle has been the Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) since 2002. Charles gives us some background on how and when he became interested in both comics and free-speech issues, beginning in childhood with movies like Pump up the Volume and Batman (1989).
