John Canemaker is not only an Academy Award winning animator and one of our greatest animation historians – but he is a gifted speaker and a most entertaining lecturer. When we get word of his upcoming appearances we are compelled to enthusiastically spread the word. Here come two more Canemaker events, both coming up in New York City, which I highly recommend you mark your calendar now:
Thu, May 14, 2015 @ 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Museum of Chinese in America (MoCA)
215 Centre Street New York, NY 10013
MoMA: The Secrets Of Walt Disney’s Movie Magic: Lecture, Book Signimng and “Fantasia”
The dazzling special effects in Walt Disney’s early Technicolor features, most notably FANTASIA, have fascinated generations of viewers, though the secrets behind their creation were long forgotten, even within the studio.
A Q&A and a screening of Fantasia (1940) follows Canemaker’s lecture.
A book signing of The Lost Notebook preceded the lecture.
