The other day I caught the end of an interesting documentary on the life of Walt Disney. Since I missed most of the television broadcast, I turned to YouTube to see the rest of it. It's an inspiring program, produced by the Disney family in 2001 and narrated by Dick Van Dyke. I learned a few things that I hadn't known before about Walt and enjoyed viewing rare footage that was new to me. I've compiled the film in the eight parts that are on YouTube onto a topic on the Forum for easy viewing. Follow this link to check out "Walt: The Man Behind the Myth". Here's the first part to get things going and to give you an idea as to the quality of this documentary.

Gobelins School of the Image in Paris is one of the reasons why French animation continues to reach new heights of creativity and excellence. This film was produced in 2008 by animators associated with the school. It's made the film festival circuit and certainly warrants a spotlight on AN's homepage. The Forum topic can be found here.
