Animator Ben Reynolds returns to talk with John about two pieces of media that, despite being very different, may be kindred spirits in terms of the positive and inspirational effects they've had on us. John starts things off with his thoughts on Pixar's Soul, how it handles representation and some of the reasons for its somewhat divisive public reception, and why its ultimate message struck him so deeply and why the movie has ended up meaning so much to him personally. After that, we take a look at one of 2020's big anime underdogs with a discussion about the one-of-a-kind Eizuoken. Topics include what an accurate and personal love letter to the craft of animation it succeeds at being, the memorable cast and worldbuilding, and how it's inspired us as creators. (And Kanamori. No one who watches this show can forget Kanamori.)

Ep.70: Mastering the Look Ahead, Part 2, with Ben Reynolds
The Tim Faller Show
When you work in a remote area, where your materials are shipped on barges to small islands, and a quick lumber yard run just isn’t possible, everything just takes longer. So having all the details planned ahead is crucial, says Ben Reynolds. In this episode, Ben talks to Tim and Steve about the challenges of working in Ontario’s cottage country, and how accurate look aheads are a key component in getting jobs done on time. Ben has been the production manager at Kawartha Lakes Construction, Lakefield, ONT, Canada, for five years. Prior to that, he was a project lead — the lead carpenter managing a job site. Before joining KLC, he ran his own small company which mainly focused on new post-and-beam construction. When he was wearing the tools, his projects always hit the pre-set milestones, and he had an extremely high success rate of delivering a project on time. KLC has different challenges than many other design-build companies, especially logistically. They deal with limited parking, moving material on boats and barges, and remote job sites. So planning ahead is key. And part of planning is looking back, keeping an accurate history of what it takes to complete a project. KLC has detailed time sheets, and can refer to experiences in the past to get accurate ideas on what it truly takes to complete a project. Ben talks about what KLC’s production process looks like, and how they plan ahead, including: The different people that need to be involvedThe two-year look aheadThe five-day planHow to use your historical dataEating the elephant one bite at a timeThe level of detail needed in the five-day planThe master production briefAchieving better time managementGetting buy-in on the planSolving conflicts in planningHow to run an efficient production meetingAnd more … If you missed our first episode dedicated to creating your own version of the look ahead, listen to Episode 64: Job Site Look Ahead with Tom Batman & Mike Topper, of Harth Builders in Spring House, PA.
