Recorded on June 9th 2010 at the Annecy festival in France, here is my interview with producer Don Hahn, from The Walt Disney animation studio. Don talks about his newest project; the documentary Waking sleeping beauty, which he directed and produced. He also talks about how he got into animation, his experiences working at Disney, his future projects, and much more.
Don has worked on classic movies, like Beauty and the Beast, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Atlantis: The Lost Empire and many more, and he recently published a lecture series based on the notes from the legendary animation-mentor Walt Stanchfield.
Thanks to Don for spending some time with us, and his assistant, Fumi Kitahara from the pr kitchen for setting up the interview.
