FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What people want to know and ask most about Gurus.
Who is your favorite character?
How long does it take to animate an episode?
It depends on what is involved in the episode, how epic or calm the skit is. On average, it takes a few days to complete a ‘Gurus Short,’ and about week to complete a 10 minute episode. The animation has been a 1-man operation thus far.
How often do you make videos?
We usually make videos in bulk, so that we have some on deck. But we can also make a video fairly quickly, addressing a trending topic.
What’s your favorite part of the animation process?
The very last movement.
How did you come up with idea for Gurus?
I wanted to make fun of my own philosophies, so I created an alter ego (Eisen Godfrey) where I would spill my philosophies out into. Then, I thought, why not only make fun of myself, but all the people I have admired and learned from.
Why is it important for you to make it?
At the end of the day, my goal is to get people to think. Sometimes being so direct isn’t the best approach. Sometimes its best to throw in a joke or laugh while doing it, it tends to go down better.
What is your vision for it?
My vision for it is for people to fall back in love with the real life version of the characters that I use in the show. I want to bring awareness to their teaching, by using them in comedic efforts, so that it inspires people to learn more about them.
