Animation Mentor Hosts a Tribute to Frank and Ollie at Siggraph 08

You may have heard that Animation Mentor is hosting a panel discussion at Siggraph this year to honor the life, work and inspiration of Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. We're so excited about this panel and the format. We will be showing a variety of work that Frank and Ollie did over the years while at Disney, comments from some amazing panelists, Q&A from the audience, some never before seen footage from Frank and Ollie themselves, etc.

It's going to be a geekfest for the animator in all of us. If you're going to Siggraph be sure to check this event out. We are excited as this event means so much to us and we've been working hard to "get it right."

It's kinda interesting how much work goes into something like this. I guess it's like a wedding. If you show up and enjoy it, the event goes by and you think, "cool that was neat." On the back end there's a lot that goes in to it. ALL of the panelists have been superstars in helping us to make this event as special as it can be. We hope you enjoy!
