TAG Interview with Nasson Vakalis
Find all TAG Interviews on the TAG website at this link

Nassos Vakalis has been one of the story pillars at DreamWorks Animation for a dozen years. One of the pioneers of digital storyboards while most in the business were still drawing on paper, Mr. Vakalis has lent his expertise to a wide variety of DWA features -- everything from Flushed Away to Kung Fu Panda to Puss In Boots. ...

And inbetween his DreamWorks Animation assignments, Nassos founded his own company Time Lapse Pictures -- which worked on a variety of European commercials and animated features, as well as the Rugrats theatricals that Klasky-Csupo was turning out.

All in all, Nassos Vakalis has been a busy animation artist, but that should be apparent as you listen to his TAG interview.

By the way, the link is wrong again, it should be part 3 in case you have time for correction.

Indeed. I seem to move too quickly when preparing these posts. It's now fixed. Thanks for the notification.

Thanks, I know how demanding your job can be obviously. The only other thing I noted is that you cut off Nassos in mid-sentence on the last MP3 clip though perhaps the YouTube video will be complete there anyway.

Always tough to find just the right spot to carve the interview into logical parts. I'll keep trying my best.
