Michael Cranberry is an animator on the Amazon show for pre-schoolers Tumble Leaf. The show has won multiple emmy awards in its first two seasons, and it’s something you don’t see much in kids’ TV anymore; it’s quiet. It’s thoughtful, it doesn’t go for a lot of jokes. It’s a simple show that is anything but simple for the team at BixPix to create.
Michael will tell us how he fell in love with the painstaking process of stop-motion animation, how he shifted from the horror genre to a preschool audience, and he will soothe us with the gentle baritone of his professionally-trained actor’s voice.
You can check out the first two seasons of Tumble Leaf on Amazon, and season 3 will be out sometime this year. You can find us on iTunes or at kid stuffpodcast.com.
Thanks for listening!
