Where would this industry be without the one and only Justin Cone? For the first official episode I had the honor of having Justin stop by in the studio/Subaru to do an in person chat. We covered the history of Motionographer and discuss where he wants to take it in the future. Justin had a difficult time keeping his hands to himself, but at least his breath was fresh and he smelled nice. Also to note, Justin was literally sick when we did this interview. This was a great way to kick off the show!
