A Couple of Comic Con Panels to Look Out For

Somehow I goofed up my template which has kept me from posting for a bit. Anyway I reset it and now I can finally post this (although Jerry Beck already scooped me):

I've never attended a panel discussion at Comic Con and so I was amazed when I clicked here and saw how many of these panels are schedules for Thursday alone. It's amazing how many they do each day! How do they have enough room for all of these?

Anyway, take a look at this one scheduled for Thursday morning:

11:00-12:00 The Disney Animation Story Process— Nathan Greno (head of story, Bolt), Don Hall (head of story, The Princess and the Frog), Mark Kennedy (head of story, Rapunzel), Joe Mateo (story artist, Bolt), Michael LaBash (story artist, Bolt), Paul Briggs (story artist, The Princess and the Frog), and Josie Trinidad (story artist, The Princess and the Frog) offer an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look into the story process at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Coming together exclusively at Comic-Con, these story team leaders will take you from first concept to final story approval as they discuss the art of storyboarding, re-create story pitches, and share boarding styles from their upcoming animated features. Don't miss this revealing and humorous panel and your chance to get a sneak peek at Disney's next animated feature, Bolt! Room 32AB

I also found this one, listed within all of the other stuff planned for Saturday:

2:30-3:30 Disney Pixar: Bolt and UP—For superdog Bolt, every day is filled with adventure, danger and intrigue, at least until the cameras stop rolling. Be the first to see exclusive animation as directors Chris Williams and Byron Howard present the new 3D comedy-adventure from Walt Disney Animation Studios! Then it's UP: From the inventive storytellers that have taken you into the worlds of space, toys, and superheroes comes the extraordinary adventure that will take you to a lost world where anything can happen, and everything will. Meet director Peter Docter (Monsters, Inc.) as he presents the first-ever look at Disney Pixar's new animated 3D adventure comedy, UP. Hall H

I'm really hoping I can make it to this Thursday panel so I can talk like I'm scheduled to. In any case, if you're at all interested in animation and/or storyboarding you ought to make an effort to check these out!

Can't wait to hear what you guys have to say, Mark! I'm really glad you're on the panel - you're so good at analyzing and explaining the process.

"oh good, i have a couple Home on the Range questions..."


I hope they're nice questions ? Home On the Range was actually pretty good. At the time it came out it got dumped on (the studio leadership at that time certainly wasn't into supporting a hand-drawn , funny cartoony film ... ) but I watched it again recently and it has it's moments . It's pretty enjoyable. I don't think it deserves the bad rep it has in some places.

randeep - I might be around on Friday...we'll see. Have a good time anyway!

jazzy - Don't be jealous...I promise to make sure it's not TOO good.

anon - very kind of you. It was a troubled production, at a troubled time....glad you like parts of it.

I am sure this will be a far more informative panel from the artistic side. I attended a storyboarding one last year that was a "buy my book on storyboarding" infomercial. Some interesting business side information, but little else. I really look forward to being there.

I also plan on getting a Rocket Johnson book. Any chance of getting it signed? :)

mark kennedy said...

andreas - No, don't worry, none of us is plugging a "how to" book. Really, it should be an honest glimpse at what we do every day...and that's about it. I will definitely sign your book if you can track me down! I should be around on Thursday and Friday, and I ought to be working the booth at some point....as well as many other (more famous and talented) people who also contributed to the book!

I had no worries about your group (although that one guy was back with a panel "Earn $100,000 a year storyboarding"). I did end up at the tail end of a very long line, and didn't get into the panel. I also was 2 or 3 people behind the last one in line to get whatever that wheel thing in the square envelope was. The nice lady ran out. :( I am also sorry in my disappointment for missing the panel I forgot to bring my book by the booth. I bought two Wednesday night (one for me and another for someone in Montana that wanted one but couldn't attend) and I felt embarrassed about asking them to be signed. Didn't want to seem like an eBay speculator.

Such is life. Next year maybe?

Oh yeah, and I love my copy of Who Is Rocket Johnson. Fabulous. One of my top 5 Comic-Con purchases in my 5 years of going.
