Episode 134 – Transformer Trio – Julie White, Garry Chalk & Mark Ryan
In this episode Eugenia and Gerri have been able to “transform” a one interview episode into three!!! How did they do this? Whilst looking into their vault of interviews for a topic they found that they had three interviews about the transformation of an 80s cartoon series into a live action movie franchise! So, what is this episode about, well it’s about Transformers of course. The cartoon series that captured the imagination of many children and when they also got the toys that “transformed” from cars and trucks into ‘super beings’, who could blame them? They also discuss how CGI can enhance or take away from the storytelling of a movie. The interviews they have in this episode transport us from animation to live action and include, Garry Chalk, the voice of the 80s Optimus Prime ( Colonel Chekov in Stargate SG-1). Tony Award winner, Julie White , who played Julie Witwicky from the live action movies. Last, but not the least of them, Mark Ryan who voices the much loved Bumblebee. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Culture Shock Events www.cultureshockevents.com for the interview with Garry.
