A Tribute to Joe Ranft

The other day, on what would have been Joe Ranft's 50th birthday, there was a lunchtime event at work where several of Joe's friends told anecdotes about him and showed home movies.

This is a video by John Musker illustrating various famous stories about Joe. I wish I could explain them, but to my great regret I had a meeting and couldn't go to the tribute.

If the video isn't formatted properly for you, click here to go to the original youtube page.

It is nice to know that there are still people who remember and celebrate the efforts of Joe Ranft! The idea of having lunch was excellent.
