Harley Jessup Speaks

Twice Upon a Time

I’ve always been interested in learning more about animation production designer Harley Jessup (Twice Upon a Time, James and the Giant Peach, Monsters, Inc.), and in the past week, two separate animation blogs have profiled him. Firstly, Ward Jenkins recently conducted a fascinating interview with Jessup in which he talks primarily about his work on the early-’80s animated film Twice Upon a Time. Also Jessup-related, the Spline Doctors have posted a new roundtable audio podcast featuring a discussion between some of the key figures in Pixar’s art department. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but the lineup of artists participating is amazing: Jessup and fellow production designer Bob Pauley, director of photography Sharon Calahan, art director Tia Kratter, and character designer Teddy Newton.
