Last night I attended a symposium in the academy for the animated feature directors.
It was and is surreal and overwhelming to be there, I felt very grateful and very proud to be
there with some of my all time animation heroes.
Pete Docter, John Musker , Ron Clements and Henry Selick are true masters and all very, very gracious , generous and friendly .
Tom Sito was a fantastic compere as well , funny and he seemed to make every one relax .
It was fascinating to hear the work practices and experiences he shared with the other nominees, I
felt as though I was sitting amongst animation royalty.
I'm still pinching myself to check this is all really happening.
