This week Alrik and co-host Andrew Schrader welcome filmmaker/editor/writer Jordan Harris to the show for part 2 of their discussion. This week we continue to talk about Jordan’s work on the Cartoon Network show but we also go into the details of his directing and writing career as well. Jordan and Andrew tell stories from the shoot of their second feature, Age of Reason, which is out now on Hulu!
Meet Jordan Harris
Jordan is a filmmaker/writer/editor/director working out of Los Angeles. He has directed spots starring talent such as Nick Offerman, Tom Lennon, Thomas Middleditch and Zach Galifianakis. He has also directed two feature films, web series and countless other projects as well. He also happens to be long time friend of the show and co-host Andrew Schrader’s long time collaborator and directing partner, which makes this conversation even more fun!
Jordan is currently working as a story editor at Cartoon Network, which is the main focus of the first part of this two part episode!
The Writing Process in Animation
Jordan continues to talk to us about writing for animation and compares his show to other animation shows to illustrate how these other shows are made.
Jordan and Andrew talk about their filmmaking work, what it was like to make their second feature The Age of Reason and what it will take for them to make a third film.
