          This event was AMAZING... and really really long! But that's a good thing!


          The night was moderated by Charles Solomon (author of many disney coffee table books) and Andreas Deja (animator: gaston, jafar, scar, hercules).

          They showed a ton of samples of his work from shorts to features, and it was amazing what his range was. From Ferdinand the Bull to Shere Kahn in Jungle Book. It really was amazing.

          the first group of panelists were:

          -Kathryn Beaumont, voice of Alice in Alice in Wonderland and Wendy Darling in Peter Pan

          -Alice Davis, Imagineer Legend, wife of Marc Davis, costume designer of Pirates of the Caribbean and It's a small World

          -Milt Kahl's daughter


          There was some great stories in that first section of the panel, one that came up frequently was how much the guy swore. But it was hilarious stuff.


          The second section of the panel were:

          -Brad Bird, director of Iron Giant, Incredibles, Ratatouille

          -Ron Musker & John Clements, directors of Great Mouse Detective, Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Treasure Planet, and Princess and the Frog

          -John Pomeroy, animator

          -Floyd Norman, animator



          Talented people in the audience included:
          -Pete Docter, director of Monsters Inc and Up
          -Mr. Sohn (i forget his first name), voice of Emille, director of the short in front of Up
          -Richard M. Sherman
          -Eric Goldberg, animator of Genie (among other things)
          -Tony Baxter, imagineer

            Extraordinary evening!

            Great to see you too CB, next time I'll hold more seats...

            It was a tremendous event filled with some truly laugh out loud moments, if Mr. Kahl's walls could talk, or fire back!

            Brad Bird's impressions of him were just classic. The stories shared were as CB said hilarious.

            Andreas Dejas' photo section was a mini-master class in appreciation and reverence. It was amazing and not soon to be forgotten. I'm in awe.

            There were many other guests in attendence as CB noted, Peter Sohn director of 'Partly Cloudy', Tony Baxter who arrived with Disney historian and artist Stacia Martin and two friends, Pete Docter (who I shared an elevator with) and many other WDAS friends and a few Warner Brothers and DreamWorks Animation-ites.

            Mr. Deja took special delight in highlighting the gorgeous programs handed out and unveiling the special "Oprah Moment" of the night: free posters of the program artwork for all! WOW, just WOW!




            A few notes and some of the night's treasures:

            Brad Bird told me he's "up to his neck and beyond" into his next film, '1906'. It will be his live-action feature film debut.

            Mr. Deja, Mr. Musker & Mr. Clements all used the words "great" and "special" when I asked them about their upcoming, 'The Princess and the Frog'. Deja also threw in, "a really different experience". Can't wait!

            Pete Docter told me that 'UP' is finished, "it's fun" and that he is "so excited to get it out there". He and Brad Bird left the event to meet up for dinner with some other pals.

            Pete Docter and the master, Milt Kahl

                Wow those are great autographs! I only filled my sketchbook as I completely left my books at my parents house in OC. Stupid me. My imagineering book would have been so much more complete.

                Alice Davis was such a sweet heart and nice to chat with after the panel. Me, her and Marc Davis shared a flight from Florida to LAX back in the day and hearing her stories about friday night chinese food and saturdays at the theater... kind of sounds like a lifestyle I could get used to.

                there's no hooking up on this one. Oscars.org has an events section with panels and exhibitions open to all. Just visit their site and check it out!

                The animation panels don't come around as often though so I think you missed out this time. Just don't forget to keep checking for the next one! It'll happen when you least expect it.

                    Lucky flight!

                    No kidding, the Chinatown dinners, theatre outings and discussions followed by The Brown Derby?! Come On! THOSE were THE days.
