CTN: Apples or oranges, tea or coffee: do you prefer creating for independent small studios, or large format bigstudios and what do you think is the difference?
Nelson Luty:
“I like the creation of independent animation that lets you, from my point of view, ha ve more control over the art that is being made. A small study is cute and appealing and can maybe be able to fly and have some shared creativity in a more intimate working environment. But I also like the animation in a large studio, the adrenaline that can generate another point of view or make you better and I like to see the strong results in that process and I think each artist learns more from the large group of other artists. I never stop learning and I really like the process! I think those are the differences between one small and one large.

CTN: What is your medium of choice for storytelling through animation and why? 2D, 3D, stop motion or all of the above?
Nelson Luty:
“If I have to choose now a method of storytelling, I would begin with 2-D. I say this because I still think that 2-D is the essence of animation. I say this in the case of the animators. It all started there and I think you always have to go back to the source. I think today we have technology to enjoy the animation and make great things and I support 3-D. But I do not want to forget the 2-D which is quite fantastic.”

CTN: Where would you like to see animation be in the next 5 years?
Nelson Luty:
“Because I think animation was created for fun, like Walt Disney during his time, that the same has to be in 5 years or more to simply enjoy yourself and entertain people. That making a child or an adult smile is it.”

CTN: How did you first hear of The Creative Talent Network and what are your expectations and goals from being a member?
Nelson Luty:
“I found out about the Creative Talent Network while working in this world of animation. A friend of mine that already belongs to the network, insisted that I belong and after being accepted I am both pleased and delighted to be here. My expectations being in this wonderful network, is to continue meeting people from the world of animation and continue to share with you this medium that fascinates us all so much and does not let us sleep.”
