The Creative Minds Behind The Academy Award Nominated Animated Film, "Anomalisa"


Anomalisa is one of the most talked about animated films of the season and has been nominated for an Academy Award.

The two men behind Anomalisa, Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson join our John Kiesewetter to discuss the stop-motion animation process they chose for the film and why it’s set in Cincinnati when neither of them has ever been here before.

John Kiesewetter joined the WVXU news team as a TV/Media blogger on July 1 2015, after nearly 30 years covering local and national broadcasting for The Cincinnati Enquirer. He’ll be posting news about Greater Cincinnati TV, radio and movies; updating your favorite former local TV/radio personalities or stars who grew up here; and breaking news about national TV, radio and media trends. You’ll also learn about Cincinnati’s rich broadcasting history.
