For the month of May, Shots celebrated all aspects of animation and talked to some of the most prolific directors and artists in the industry.

Linda Codega, caught up with Kenny (one third of directing trio, Shynola) to dig deep into their 20 year legacy of filmmaking to uncover their approach, creative influences and the key breakthroughs that helped to define their career.

We’re fortunate in that from the start we decided each project should be different from the last. Initially it was a way of keeping it interesting for ourselves but now we wear it as a badge of honour. We often pitch things we don’t quite know how to pull off, or for which there is no ‘off-the-shelf’ solution. Figuring it out is fun and consequently work for us is endlessly creative and experimental.”
