Tom (How to date a girl in ten days) Humberstone and Alex Fitch chat about the early films of David Lynch, which mixed animation and live action to beguiling effect, and discuss how Lynch may have been influenced by Terry Gilliam and Jan Å vankmajer.

Virginie Sélavy talks to Charles Burns about his contribution to the French portmanteau film Fear(s) of the dark (Peur(s) du noir)and about his acclaimed graphic novel Black Hole.
