We got to do a lot of amazingly stupid fun things this season but getting to work with STOOPID BUDDIES on the H.A.T.E.R.V commercial was one of the most stupid!! I love that so much study, care, and effort was put into something so wonderfully dumb.
Thanks to everyone involved in this project, especially Ethan, Dave, Alex, Janet, Ben, Keith, Frank, and Zabrina.
We had a meeting today that went over the schedule for the remainder of “Zootopia”. There were lots of graphs, charts and decimal points!
I like these meetings a lot. Yes, it can be daunting looking up at all those numbers, and how much we still have to do, but I love the transparency. Having worked in 5-6 different studios, t.v animation, commercial and feature, Disney has been the most transparent of them all (which you might think would be the opposite). I think as a business, it can build a lot of trust and loyalty in your employees.
One of my favorite parts of the job is knowing all the films that are being worked on at the studio, and watching as they develop and evolve!
