Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is Boing Boing’s podcast featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the practical side of how they do what they do.
The animation project Giant Sloth, starring Paul Giamatti, could be described asNight at the Museum meets Eraserhead. In this episode, we discuss the making of this animated short with its creator, Paul Hornschemeier. He tells us how the cast came together, what the transition from comics to filmmaking and television is like, and how social media has helped him draw more. He’s currently raising funds to complete Giant Sloth.
