I've been so busy and so many things to catch up on! I wanted to post about something that is really exciting to me.
I grew up in Florida and in art classrooms in the late 80's-early 90's so it should come as no surprise that becoming a Disney animator and working for "The Mouse" was on my list of things to do when I grew up. I loved Disney movies. I loved getting books about Disney animation from the library and trying to teach myself how to draw just like a Disney animator.
Last Friday the documentary, Waking Sleeping Beauty came out in a few select cities. It's the story about the Disney animators and all the movies that almost never happened.
I don't know if the movie is showing in my area but there is going to have to be a way for me to get my hands on this movie.
Check out the trailer below:
My favorite part is right around the 1:35 mark where you see Tim Burton ( Love him!) looking so out of place with all the perky Disney people and then John Lasseter who is now one of the chief creative officers with Pixar and a big part of Toy Story 1 & 2, A Bug's Life and Cars.
Lots more updates coming soon!
