MUSHKA Industry Screening


Last Tuesday we invited the animation industry to attend a special screening of MUSHKA. 
The old Fine Arts Theatre on Wilshire Boulevard turned out to be the perfect venue because of its superior sound and picture quality. 
We showed the film in 4K with full blown surround sound. 

With Dave Bossert, my friend and colleague. We both started at Disney on the Black Cauldron.

Checking sound and picture quality just before the actual screening.

We had a full house, about 400 people. What an amazing feeling to share the film with industry colleagues.

Two standing ovations...I was literally flabbergasted. What a lovely reaction.

The guest of honor was of course Richard Sherman who loved connecting with old friends that night.

The musical dream team behind Mushka..Richard with composer Fabrizio Mancinelli.

Richard and Bruce Reitherman. These two go back to the original Jungle Book!

Richard with two amazing friends of mine: Leslie and Mike Iwerks.

The lovely and super talented Holly Sedillos, who sang Mushka's lullaby for the film. The song was written by Richard.

Two old friends who both worked on the Jungle Book. That's story man Floyd Norman.

One of the best nights of my life.
