Video: Introduction

(Music playing.) Male Speaker: Tell me about the show, Goofy. Goofy Grape: The show? What show? Ashley Postlewaite: We don't have tons and tons of expensive equipment. What we have is people and that's really our key ingredient and what makes us, I think what sets us apart from others. Goofy Grape: Hahaha, I'm kidding. Come one, we're talking about Funny Face, right? Darrell Van Citters: My big thing, I suppose you would it call my soapbox, is I don't think the tool should dictate the results.

Introduction

(Music playing.) Male Speaker: Tell me about the show, Goofy. Goofy Grape: The show? What show? Ashley Postlewaite: We don't have tons and tons of expensive equipment. What we have is people and that's really our key ingredient and what makes us, I think what sets us apart from others. Goofy Grape: Hahaha, I'm kidding. Come one, we're talking about Funny Face, right? Darrell Van Citters: My big thing, I suppose you would it call my soapbox, is I don't think the tool should dictate the results.

I think you should dictate the results, and then use the tool to get there. Goofy Grape: Ah well. It's not like that. It's actually... eh, it's more like... Goofy Grape: They didn't tell you what the show was about? Does anybody know what this show's about? Anybody? Ashley Postlewaite: In our business, I mean really every character has two actors. It has its voice actor and then it has its animator who is really the actor, who is making that character come to life. Goofy Grape: Is that a plantain? Oh, my cousin there is a plantain. You know her parents still aren't speaking to her. Darrell Van Citters: I really have a hard time with saying, okay, that's as far as it's going to go, so let's just crank it out.

That's not inspiring to me. That doesn't make me want to get up and come in the morning; it's telling you stories with characters. Male speaker off camera: We were talking about the show. It would be just peachy if you could expand a little on the show. Goofy Grape: Oh, absolutely! Huhhhh (taking a deep breath.) Goofy Grape: Mwa, mwa, mwa (muffled.) Goofy Grape: Is that good? Because don't think I can expand anymore. (Music playing.)
