On today’s podcast I have a nice long chat with Animation Great Tom Sito! He’s an artist, animator, director writer, teacher and historian! He has more cartoon knowledge and experience in one fingernail than any of us have collectively!
Interview with Filmation Disney Animator Dana Reemes! Cartoons! Animation! We get into the mind of a veteran Artist. Drawing, Sketching and more! The Glamorous side of being an Animator.
Filmation also made live action Saturday morning kid shows. One of them was Space Academy! When it tanked, the abandoned sci fi sets were used to house artist cubicles! Studios will literally shove artist cubicles ANYWHERE!
Today I am going to introduce to you a very special friend of mine from way back in my Disney days. His name is Dana Reemes and he is the cat’s pajamas!
I used to stay late at the studio every night and work on my own animation projects. You know me, I’m always trying to better myself. I figured I wasn’t going to be at Disney forever and wanted to take full advantage of my time there. Dana worked nights as well and we became friends. Dana met Robert Crumb in 1967 in the flea bag Miramonte Hotel on Mission Street where Robert was staying at the time. Dana brought his sketchbook and Robert kindly went over it with him! Not only that, Crumb gave some sage advice as well as a Crowquill Penpoint! Believe it or not Dana still has it!
