Content Spotlight: The Comics Fu Show – Brad Graeber Part 2

Hey there Silverline Fam!

I did a write up for this when the last episode went live, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t also feature this episode, as it is a part 2. The Comics Fu Show continues the interview Powerhouse Animation founder Brad Graeber.

For those who don’t know Powerhouse Animation is . . . well, an animation studio that is currently a powerhouse in the field. Recently they have worked on Castlevania, Masters of the Universe: Revelations, Seis Manos, and Blood of Zeus. I would honestly recommend any one of those shows.

They start off the episode talking about the influences of Seis Manos then transition Brad’s experience as leader at Powerhouse Animation. Brad also gives some deep insight into the humble beginnings of Powerhouse Animation. They interview takes some fantastic turns and covers some points that I found pretty inspirational even as a comic writer/editor.

Brad also spills the tea on some new projects that Powerhouse has down the line.

Brad is a genuine and thoughtful guy. Listening to him in this interview is really a treat. I would have got Kurtis a year’s worth of Del Taco just to sit in on this. Please give it watch and enjoy the conversation.

Be good ya’ll!

Content Spotlight: The Comics Fu Show – Brad Graeber

Hey Silverline Fam!

I know what you’re thinking. “That’s a lot of content spotlights back-to-back.” You’re right, and to that I say, we got good content dangit! We got lots of dope videos and interviews being live-streamed or uploaded all the time. We’ll be back with another Craft here soon, but this week we uploaded a special video that I want to feature!

That video is another episode of The Comics Fu show. I said it last time, but this is my favorite type of content that we create. This week features a conversation with Brad Graeber, CEO/CCO of Powerhouse Animation (Seis Manos, Masters of the Universe: Revelations, Castlevania, Blood of Zeus). When it comes to guests with clout, this is a contender for the peak. Castlevania is also in my top 5 for favorite modern shows, so Brad if you’re watching, hi.

In this episode, Co-hosts Sifu Kurtis Fujita and Patrick Lugo ask brad about how Kung Fu influences movement, animation, and everyday life.

As a practicing kickboxer, hearing how different martial artists combine their arts (combat and comic) is always fascinating. Taking that conversation and including animation really provides a lot of food for thought. I grew up watching anime and animation and was always fascinated by the visual poetry of a well-choreographed fight. Getting some insight on the creative side of that is really powerful.

I definitely recommend taking some time and checking out this video.

Stay good!
