My guest in this episode is Academy-Award Winning director Peter Ramsey. Of course, everyone knows Peter Ramsey is one of the co-directors on Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, which won the team an Oscar. This was a historic moment for Ramsey, who became the first African-American ever to be nominated for or win in the Animated feature category. But he’s actually been in the business a REALLY long time. One of his first gigs out of school was as the storyboard artist and second unit director for John Singleton’s Boyz ‘N the Hood.
Peter Ramsey was John Singleton’s storyboard artist on Boys ‘N the Hood.
He also boarded Tank Girl and worked on many other projects, including HULK, Batman Forever, and Fight Club.
If you follow me on youtube, you might have already heard part of this episode with Peter Ramsey because this is from when Peter visited me on theblerdgurlLIVE over on Twitch. We talk about everything from his humble beginnings growing up in South Central to figuring out where Hollywood was and switching his career to animation.
