Your Feedback: INDAC Online Talk with Glen Keane about OVER THE MOON

Hi Johannes!
Wow! What an incredible interview! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of this wonderful conversation. I have never seen an interviewer connect with their interviewee so well. The questions you asked were well informed and thoughtful, and your excitement and respect for Mr. Keane really showed through! My goodness, I would love to watch hours more of that conversation.
All the best,

Hi Johannes,

Wollte nur mal vielen Dank sagen, war ein tolles Q&A mit vielen guten Fragen und interessanten Geschichten.

Danke fürs organisieren. Vielleicht sieht man sich ja bald mal wieder in Person (wenn’s mit corona etwas besser läuft) bin nach 8 Jahren wieder zurück nach Deutschland gezogen und hab in den Jahren die Indac Events sehr vermisst.

Liebe Grüße,

On the Glen Keane Talk:
I would like to thank the people involved in making the Glen Keane talk happening because in these days that theres been so many online events, this particular one stood out for me because it kept the human touch by making a conversation with the guest and allowing to access the ways of doing and ways of thinking of an artist more than simply getting advice on how to be part of an industry or repeating on the subjects that so many of these talks are touching. And it also happens to be that I was able to be part of this while I am in Colombia, Latinamerica and seeing so many people participating and enjoying  from zo many different parts of the world which is awesome.

Hi Johannes!

Thank you for a lovely talk! Will the recording of this interview be available anywhere?

Best regards,

Hi there Johannes.

I enjoyed the talk and very much so the second half where it became more of a discussion about animation in general.

Not that I mind to hear about the specifics of a particular production. Generally though those are kept quite superficial and positive, understandable as this is to promote the production after-all.

I think you do a great job at getting your guests to talk about their views in story telling, techniques, what it was like making the production and of course the future of animation.

Thank you for organizing these events!

Hi team,

I’m so sad I missed this recording!
Is it available to watch online or with a timed password please?

Thanks for your help,

Hello Johannes,

First of all congratulations on a successful INDAC online event!

I truly did enjoy myself 🙂 it came together wonderfully! I was unsure of how one would be able to host a show on zoom, but it was more than a considerable success.
Your entry into the conversation was a classic example of online communication these days and introduced a light hearted and personal touch. 
It is always a pleasure listening to the stories of masters at work and their humble beginnings . Glen keane is a man of many words and he expresses himself exactly the way he animates, illustrates and writes stories. A true depth, leaving us all engrossed , latching on to every precious word . I could’ve listened to you both banter all day:)
You asked the right questions allowing him to weave his narrative together during this talk. I tip my hat to you and your team for being able to pull off something  like this and at this scale .
Thank you for having me . I was listening in from Montreal, at my work desk, totally distracted from what I had to do that day 😛 (sshh) . Time well spent!

Hope there is another one soon to come:)

Warm regards

Hi Johannes,

zunächst ein großes Dankeschön für die Orga. Technische Probleme kommen vor und deine Kollegin hat das super gemacht. Das war gar kein Problem. Ich hab viel mitgenommen von der Veranstaltung und würde mich sehr freuen, wenn es mehr INDAC ONLINE TALKS gäbe 🙂
Ein kleiner Tipp für Online Sessions: Glen Keane hatte keine Kopfhörer auf, das heißt Zoom versucht Feedback zu reduzieren, in dem sein Mikro gemutet wird, wenn jemand spricht, sonst würde das Signal der Lautsprecher über das Mikro ein Feedback erzeugen. Wenn du ein zustimmendes „Hmm“ „Ja“ „Ah“ von dir gibst, dann hört man Mr. Keane für 1-2 Sekunden nicht, weil sein Mikro runtergezogen wird. Also vielleicht besser über ein Nicken zustimmen 🙂

Hi Johannes,

Thank you very much for organising the event – I was excited to attend and wasn’t let down, it was a completely priceless experience. It felt extremely intimate and definitely showcased one of the positives that have come out of the current situation with Covid – everybody working together and adapting to keep creativity alive.

I particularly enjoyed the casual environment, seeing Glen Keane in his own space.

There was one area in particular I think could be improved on. I don’t know if you are aware that any speech Zoom picks up from the participants will cause the platform to shift focus onto that person. For example when you were engaging in conversation with Glen, the little affirmative sounds – „yes, mmhmm, etc“ would shift the focus from Glen to you. I find that to achieve the best outcome on Zoom we have to adapt our style of conversation and refrain from some of the natural responses, learning to show acknowledgement with gestures rather than sounds.

I hope this is helpful and makes sense.

Best Wishes

Hey Johannes,

Thanks for organizing the talk! It was nice to have someone like glen Keane come over.

The talk itself was quite nice and insightful but I wished there would have been more questions answered, people wrote prior to the talk. It didn’t really feel like a Q&A yet.

Maybe you could stick to the questions more next time that would have been great since there’s no way to ask someone like glen Keane questions everyday.

That’s would be my feedback.

Thanks and have a nice day

Hallo Johannes,

vielen Dank für das spannende Q&A gestern und schön, dass du meine Frage hast unterbringen konntest. Ich war überrascht wie weit sich Glen Keane geöffnet hat und wie persönlich er letztlich gesprochen hat. Vielleicht lag es ja am Rahmen der Veranstaltung. So sehr ich die Präsentation im Kino vermisse, hat das Q&A dort immer sehr viel mehr von Selbstdarstellung und Show und ist weit weniger Intim.
Danke nochmals,
Matthias

Viele herzliche Grüße,

I really loved this talk, and I learned really valuable things! Plus, it was awesome to have a masterclass from such a legendary animator as Glen Keane!
I would love to be a part of the next talks you’ll do! Thank you for everything

My best regards,

Hi Johannes!
Thanks so much for hosting the Over the Moon talk with Glen Keane! It was really interesting to learn more about what influenced and went into the film as it was a labor of love for many people, and it showed! So I’m really glad they were share a peek at that, and I hope to be able to work on projects like this in the future. Thank you, again, and I look forward to any future Q&As you all do!

Hello!

This talk was really important to me. I am learning to become a 2D animator and Mr. Keane is such a humble and wonderful person. I wish I could be like him. I was really inspired after this conference. When he was talking about seeing another person’s work and wondering „what I’m doing here, when they realize that I’m not good enough“ I was… I’ve had thoughts like this many times. So if HE had those too… Well, this gave me much more confidence. Thank you so much for hosting this amazing and inspiring conference! I will totally join again.

Much love from Italy,

Giulia Toneatto

Hi Johannes,
I just wanted to let you know i really enjoyed the Q and A last night.
Thanks for arranging and allowing me to participate.
Just wondering if this will be available to view anywhere in the future ?
All the very best,

Morning Johannes,

Thanks for yesterday conference with Glen Keane with whom I worked for 2 years on Tarzan at Disney in 1997-1999

Was this conference recorded? Is there a way to get the link to pass it onto friends who couldn’t be there last night?

Many thanks in advance,

Moin Johannes,
ich möchte mich für das tolle INDAC-Event gestern abend bedanken!
Es war wahnsinnig inspirierend Glen Keane und Dir zuzuhören. Nicht oft hat man die Gelegenheit ein bisschen über den Hintergrund eines so großen Künstlers zu erfahren. Vielen Dank für Deine Gesprächsführung, die ja den ein oder anderen Informationsedelstein zutage gefördert hat (zumindest für mich).
Danke für Dein Engagement und WEITER SO!
Viele Grüße,

HI Johannes-

The talk was great!! Thanks so much to you and everyone on your team who helped to put it together!! 🙂

Hello mr Wolters

If we liked it ? it was awesome for a student in 3D animation to have in point of view of few things.
Glen Keane inspire a lot of people in the world, the questions asked were good and his answer too.
Of course no it wasn’t a waste of time !! obviously you have to do more Q&A like this with some supervisor .

I don’t have anything wrong to say, it was your first time and you did a good job with good informations by mail .

Yes I have one request for you, it could be really interessant if the person who asked the question, could be in webcam with Glen Keane or other  ‘’Mentor’’ for the future. The man/girl who ask the question will be very very happy to ask this question in front of his webcam .
I think.. but you are the boss aha

Can’t wait to see another Q&A !

Thibaut Sertin.

Vielen Dank für das super Event !

Mich hätten natürlich noch ein paar Zahlen und Fakten interessiert, aber die kann ich auch anders recherchieren.

Mir hat es auf jeden Fall viel Spaß gemacht 🙂
