This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Academy Award®-winning Director Peter Ramsey about his episode of Faceplant on where he addresses how he has learned from failure. Of course, I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to talk to him about his role as co-director of a small film you may have hear of, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I also made sure to ask him about what it feels like to be the first African American filmmaker nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and what life has been like since his win. Watch the full interview below!

Given his impressive resume and all that he had to say about his successes and failures, it was such a fun interview. You should also check out his episode on the new docuseries Faceplant — available to watch now on
