My first day at the CTN Expo in one word: Awesome. I met with so many great people, Louie del Carmen, Kent Melton & Peter de Seve to name just a few.
The highlight of the day for me was the Panel with Andreas Deja. He showed some great penciltests from Lady and the Tramp and the Sword in the Stone, and shared some great stories on Frank Thomas and Milt Kahl.
But the program said there was also a surprise guest with Andreas, and that was the cherry on the cake:
Richard Sherman of the Sherman Brothers was there and played on the piano some of the amazing classic songs they wrote for The Jungle Book, Winnie the Pooh and Mary Poppins! Plus he also shared some great stories about how it was to work for Walt Disney back in the days. It was pretty magical, I have to say.
So that's a little impression of my first day here in Burbank at the CTN Expo. I'm off for day 2 and I'm curious if it will beat the first.
