Kevin Noel is the senior vice president of production for Sony Pictures Animation. But the story of how he reached that impressive level provides a helpful road map for folks trying to break into the industry on the latest Breakfast All Day A La Carte. Kevin discusses growing up skateboarding and making movies in sleepy Santa Barbara, studying film at San Francisco State University, his early work as an extra and at a talent agency, getting his start in animation and what it takes to produce a massive, computer-generated spectacle like the Oscar-winning “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” He also talks about two new animated series he’s working on: “Agent King” for Netflix and the return of “The Boondocks” for HBO Max. Listen and enjoy — and Happy New Year!
