Tim Hodge and I worked together at Big Idea Productions back in the early 2000’s. As one of the first artists to migrate to the Mid-West from Disney Studios Tim brought a wealth of story and production insight that could only have come from a major studio.
Tim’s Veggietale directorial debut was Lyle the Kindly Viking which to this day stands out as one of my favorites in the series. . . what’s not to like about an asparagus viking knitting pot-holders. 🙂
I love what Tim has done with Br. Thomas. Somewhere between religious ecstasy and winning the Irish lottery!
