Start The Beat 074: JUSTIN NIXON (ROUND TWO)

For the 74th episode I got to sit down with Justin Nixon for another conversation about his recently released animated stop motion film Battery Life. The last time he was on the show things were still in the earlier stages of production. Now that the film has been completed and released to the public, I wanted to sit down with him again to catch up and pick his brain about everything. Care to join? Sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!
