23 - Static Shock - Black N Animated Podcast

June 2, 2019

   Hey howdy hey BNA Listeners!

Bre and Way are back this week to chat about the SUPER HERO... STATIC SHOCK, WHOOP WHOOP!  It's almost funny how long it's taken them to talk about this show. WELL THE WAIT IS OVER.  Bre and Way discuss 3 iconic episodes in the series, and discuss their powerful messages involving gun violence, bullying, racisim, and black acceptance.   Static is a show that wasn't afraid to be silly, but also tackle important issues that children should learn about.

They also dive in briefly to the Origin of Static in Milestone Comics and his creator Dwayne McDuffie. 

Come to think of it... maybe it's good it took them a little bit longer to get around to talking about Static. Yesterday, 6/1/19 was the 25 year anniversary of Static Shock! PERFECT TIMING!

Hey howdy hey, 
   we're back again with another episode for you! This time we interview Technical Director on Disney TVA's Big City Greens CHRISTINA HALSTEAD YA'LL!

   We dive into the world of a critical role in the animation process that honestly isn't talked about enough! The TD's are the last line of defense and they are the problem solvers.  She tells us the tale of how she came into the world of animation and how everyone has their own path into the industry, whether it's the traditional way of doing internships... or being recognized for knowing certain programs and becoming a valuable asset to the pipeline. We even peer into her personal love of fantasy creature character design and her love of the hero's journey and how those tales inspire her own work. 

Check out the world of being a TD you guys! You don't wanna miss it!

Zip ah Dee doo Dah every body!

This week we discuss Song of the South. This film has been lock away in the Disney Vault for years because of controversial stereotypes. However many people may recognize elements from the film but have never seen it, including the song Zip-Ah-Dee-Doo-Dah and characters like Br'er Rabbit, Bear and Fox. 

Bre and Way watch the film and review what make it so controversial, and ask themselves if it really is something that must be hidden in the vault forever.
