From Professor Bill Kroyer of the Digital Arts program:


On Wednesday, April 6, Dodge College will host two of the most important animation directors in Hollywood history, John Musker and Ron Clements. “Ron & John” have created some of the most famous works in the modern Golden Age, arguably starting that revival with their classic THE LITTLE MERMAID, followed by meg-hits such as ALADDIN and HERCULES. They revived interest in the 2D animated feature with last year’s THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG.

In addition to being Disney’s longest-serving directing team, Ron & John are great storytellers with a wealth of art history and industry experience. They will bring seldom seen behind-the-scenes material as well as unusual clips and artwork.

This is a rare chance to see the industry’s most famous team discuss their work.

No signup is required, and it’s a free event. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to come face to face with some of Hollywood’s animation legends!
