Episode 48 – Gwyneth Moreland
SnapSessions! presents Episode 48, featuring an interview with Mendocino singer/songwriter Gwyneth Moreland, and Doug Nunn’s Avenue of the Stars, a memoir of his time working on The Simpsons Movie as an animator.
We open with Avenue of the Stars, in which Doug Nunn recalls learning the Adobe Photoshop and After Effects programs in the SF State Digital Intensive program and creating his own homemade cartoons. Then in March 2007 he received a phone call from old friend and producer of The Simpsons Movie Richard Sakai, which led to him working on that production as an After Effects animator. His three-month sojourn in Hollywood gave him an unforgettable adventure in animation and the movie industry.
The episode also features an interview with singer/songwriter Gwyneth Moreland. Gwyneth talks about growing up in Mendocino, her teenage exploration of music, her first gigs at Lipinski’s Juice Joint as part of the band Foxglove, and her education as a Veterinary Technician in Colorado. She recounts returning to the Northern California, her immersion in songwriting and touring with Michael Monko, and her albums—Wishbone; Ceilings, Floors & Open Doors; Cider; and Country Nocturne. Gwyneth then chats about some of her favorite songs and her musical life with her partner, Skyler Hinkle, and their kids.
