In this episode we've got a double scoop of talented creators in Karen Disher and Sharon Bridgeman, who join me to chat through their careers.
Karen and Sharon have recently joined the multi-talented crew that Brad Lewis and P.J. Gunsagar have been assembling at Spire Animation Studios. After glittering career journeys through major animation houses, Karen and Sharon were drawn to Spire’s creative culture.
Karen's career began with Beavis and Butt-Head and continued onto Blue Sky where she worked on pretty much every project they produced. Her journey at Blue Sky ended with Disney's purchase of Fox's assets, as did a feature film directorial debut project that was in the works.
Sharon started out on TV with Ninja Turtles and has worked on iconic films such as Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas and spent many years at Dreamworks as a Story and Storyboard Artist. One of her more recent films has been none other than the groundbreaking Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse.
