1990 at Disney Animation


We had just screened a work in progress version of The Prince and the Pauper for two Disney icons, Marc Davis and Joe Grant. Here they are commenting on story, animation and general entertainment. This is 32 YEARS AGO!!! That might be the reason why I don't remember one thing these two legends said. At that time I had been at Disney for 10 years. And I was so lucky to have gotten to know Marc and Joe, but also Frank and Ollie, Kimball, Milt and of course Eric Larson. 

That's Dan Rounds on the left, the producer of the film. He not only imitates my pose, but also my sense of fashion... ;) 


  1. And you are both stealing the Foot Locker uniform look ;)

    Must've been a nerve-wracking experience to get feedback from these giants.

  2. 32 years ago?! And to think I am exactly 32 years old....Regardless, how I wish we would have known what Marc and Joe said during that screening.

    1. I'm in the same league as you. I'm exactly 32 years old too.

  3. El impacto y el legado del señor Andreas Deja es intachable, participo en tantos filmes icónicos de Walt Disney y su influencia en el desarrollo de personajes y supervisor de animación en tantos filmes han resultado en inspiración para nuevos animadores.
