10- John Asher Pt 1 – Director, Writer, Actor

John Asher

The one million ways I know John Asher before we met today. What’s YOUR Bacon Score? Rico beat out another actor already cast for I Hate Kids, thanks for pushing for him @maryjoslater! John gives us an Adam Goldberg Story. We discuss what comedy is and comedic auditions. LEAVE IT IN THE ROOM! Then John asks me if I think the Penis looks real. We love Margaret Cho! Screw the Razzies.
To see the commercial with the cat, I’ve posted it to my Instagram @JenniferLynnWarren
There are no bad movies, critics can suck a nut.
Don’t let bullies give you their yuckies.
Go see A Boy Called Po, it’s a beautiful love letter to John’s son Evan, and he speaks about having a son with Autism.
Get the tissues ready, this section is very heartfelt and will pull at all the feel goods in your heart!
Have fun, don’t be so scared.
John gives a breakdown of his next sci fi project
Don’t listen to casting directors about everything and how things “should be”

We talk about…

I Hate Kids… the movie not the continuation of our species.

The films you make in Los Angeles vs Canada 

Frank is also an animator of all sorts. Like all the sorts. 

What is a clean up animator? See what I mean?

How often is an animated film changed? Seems like it’s pretty constant. That would drive me mad.
