Articles of Note

A few interesting articles for today: here’s an INTERVIEW with background painter Ron Dias, who started at Disney during SLEEPING BEAUTY and has since worked on SECRET OF NIMH, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? and many other projects. Next, the NEW YORK TIMES previews DreamWorks/NBC’s FATHER OF THE PRIDE, in which the show’s writers talk about how the lion characters are going to make fun of Al Gore and Dick Cheney. All this cutting-edge comedy for only $2.5 million per episode. And finally, a REVIEW of a new art exhibit at the Maitland Art Center (Orlando, Florida) which presents the fine art of animation artists.
