5TH ANNIVERSARY ANIMATION EVENT

AUGUST 18-23, 2002

ORLANDO, FL – “Drawing” a
collection of some of the world's greatest animators to the Walt
Disney World® Resort in Florida, the Disney Institute prepares to
host its 5th Anniversary Animation Event August
18-23, 2002. During this enriching event, Disney Institute
brings together animation enthusiasts with some of the top names in
the world of professional animation.
After several attempts, the
villains have taken control over the event and are planning a
wickedly fun time. Beware, for they are plotting new ways to subject
you to a grueling schedule of workshops, artist presentations, and
team projects. They will have you dreaming, theming, and scheming
with other shady characters who are also interested in the torturous
world of animation.
Over the event's five days,
world-class animators share their real life secrets of producing
outstanding animation as you take part in special presentations,
attend screenings of Disney films, and team produce an animated
short film. For the 5th anniversary event we will once
again have the frightfully funny and always spellbinding
Kurtti as our moderator. Jeff is a renowned animation
historian and author of titles including
Treasure Planet: The
Legend, the Lore, and the Loot;
Atlantis: Journal of Milo
The Art of Mulan.
For reservations to this
one-of-a-kind anniversary event, please call 407-827-7600.
Register by May 1 and, as a special gift, you will receive a
