In 2017, when the industry caught sight of the first teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, our collective jaws dropped. The rest is history of course as the movie went on to win just about every award imaginable. In this episode, I chat with Josh Beveridge, Head of Animation on Spider-Verse, and we talk through his career, all of which has been at Sony Pictures Imageworks, and how the animation on Spider-Verse was a culmination of things that had been building for years, and how that first trailer drop allowed them to breathe a sigh of relief.
Josh was also Head of Animation on Netflix's surprise gem, The Sea Beast which premiered earlier this year.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
