Hello and welcome to episode 8 of The Closing Credits Podcast. Today, I interviewed Academy Award winning Industrial Light & Magic Animation Supervisor, Hal Hickel. In this episode, we spoke about his different work on various films, working on his first television show, The Mandalorian, when does one decide to use practicals vs VFX or a mix of both, animating digital humans, and if deep fakes are helpful to the industry.
