Up today is the second in our series of three interviews with animators and artists from Reel Fx/ Relativity Media’s animated feature Free Birds! This time around we’re speaking with Rich McKain who was the supervising animator on the film. Enjoy!
More about the film:
Directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!), this new animated buddy comedy features a hilarious all-star cast lead by Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler. Wilson and Harrelson play two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks who must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history— and get turkey off the Thanksgiving menu for good. Freebirds is currently playing in theaters nationwide. More about the movie can be found via the Free Birds site.
