  • collaborating with Battle Axe
  • how the look came to exist
  • stylistic challenges
  • cel vs vector vs rigged - in a single shot
  • expressions 🤜 💥 🤛 drawing

Adam walks through:

  • revisiting a classic
  • limiting beliefs and a return to keyframing

  • getting help and taking time
  • writing music and words
  • recording nonsense voice over
