This is a really interesting interview with Yoo Jae-myung, who’s an animation director for both A:tLA and LoK. There’s quite a bit of new behind-the-scenes information from both series, and he gets to tell his personal story about getting involved in animation, too.
The most relevant thing for Korra fans now, I think, is that he pretty much confirmed that the Studio Pierrot rumors were true at one point (because Studio Mir wanted to take a breather by working on The Boondocks instead), but Book 2 ended up being animated by Studio Mir anyway because that particular partnership didn’t work out.
Also interesting (if terribly depressing) is that Nickelodeon actually suspended production of Korra when Book 1 was being planned because they didn’t like Korra being a female protagonist… but after seeing the first episode completed, they went all in for four books. They apparently see LoK as their premiere show, which is really awesome. =D (Now just make us some proper merchandise, Nick!)
There’s certainly a lot more in the video, though, so I’d definitely suggest watching it. (Though I will warn that they use finale clips in the background that… really shouldn’t be used as background for an interview? I mean, I don’t want to see the boat scene when I’m watching an interview =( )

THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3
Where on earth can I go in order to shake this guy’s hand?
That teacher is an idiot for constantly dismissing him.
You think “problem” kids are unintelligent, you’re blind. This kid is spot on.
Maybe I should be a teacher… because what he’s saying is everything I’ve ever wanted to do. Teachers who ‘teach’ from the standard texts with no joy, no passion, and no genuine care about the future of these kids is the reason there’s so many uneducated and disinterested people in the world today.
