On Monday, May 5 Dodge College is excited to welcome Chris Buck, the director of the box office hit Frozen. Buck will discuss his work on the film, screen clips and discuss his experience in the animation industry.
With over twenty years of experience, Buck directed Frozen after working in animation, art direction, story and screenplay writing, and previous directing jobs. Along with directing Frozen, he also developed and wrote the story of it based on the fairy tale The Snow Queen. Previous films he wrote were Pocahontas and the screenplay for 2007’s Surf’s Up. His most well-known directing work before releasing Frozen was 1999’s Disney hit Tarzan.
Frozen not only was critically acclaimed and financially impressive, but also innovative in its animation using specific features that have never been done in any film before. The film quickly became the highest grossing animation film of all time and sixth of all films after generating $1.14 billion in worldwide revenue. In addition, it went on to win the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature.
Professor Bill Kroyer invites you to join him and Buck as they take an inside look at Frozen next Monday, May 5 at 7:00 p.m. in Folino Theater.
