This week we have the HUGE honor of chatting with a man who is part of a family legacy.
Toby Froud has huge shoes to fill and he fits into them rather well. Toby's parents are Wend and Brian are well known fabricators, artists and Henson Alumni.
Wendy created the original Yoda! They are responsible for creatures featured in Star Wars, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.
Which brings us to Toby, who made his debut in the entertainment industry as the baby in the movie Labyrinth. But Toby now does all his acting behind a puppet. Toby himself is becoming a renowned designer, fabricator and writer. You can see his craftsmanship in the stop motion medium with films such as ParaNorman and the upcoming Box Trolls.
But Toby is not content to just work for others. He recently completed a short that brings him back to his family traditions.
Lessons Learned is a short starring a puppet cast. The short is written and designed by Toby with help from his Father Brian Froud.
It's a coming of age story set in a fantasy setting and we cannot wait to see both it and what Toby brings us in the future.

Anyone worth their salt whose ever picked up a controller in the 90's should be well aware of the character known as Abe.
For those who do not, here's a quick lesson... In the 90's there was an odd creature known as Abe. His pals worked in a factory, a factory that made meat products...meat products made of Abe's pals! So he had to save 'em.
Abe and his entire world... an " Oddworld ", was the creation of this week's guest Lorne Lanning.
In the 90's we had never seen a game as smart, as beautiful or as cinematic as OddWorld: Abe's Oddysee which was followed by Abe's Exoddus.
We really enjoyed talking with Lorne for the 2 hrs you're about to hear!
We delve into his early years, being an artists, being in trouble, working on The Reagan Star Wars projects, working in VFX and eventually landing in games where he continues to make waves.
And of course we talk about the new Oddworld game coming July 22nd 2014 Oddworld: New N' Tasty
