Thank you Trickfilm Festival on Line and Max Howard for a wonderful interview. Everyone who was so lucky to have watched it leaned that Max was a child movie actor, got into animation via WHO SHOT ROGER RABBIT and ended up sharing his very valuable insights about working in China. If you didn’t see it you missed a great opportunity to get some great advice from some one who has been there and is still doing it. - Nancy Denney-Phelps
