Welcome to the Ink and Paint Folk podcast- a look at animation through the women and non-binary folk who make it!
Hosted by Cassie Soliday
Today’s guest is animation artist and junior producer, Kira Rodrigues!
Kira is a recent graduate from Singapore with internships under her belt and endeavoring into her first full-time film and animation industry job. She has big hopes and dreams and is excited to share how she plans to get there. In our chat, she shares how she managed her time in college when more and more piled onto her plate, how she pushed past shyness to interact with other like-minded animation lovers online, how she became involved with Rise Up Animation and even volunteers for them now.
