    'The Iron Giant' 10th Anniversary event 10/23/09


    THE IRON GIANT
    10th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION



    ASIFA-Hollywood will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the 1999 animated masterpiece “The Iron Giant”, with an evening with lively discussion with some of the animators and crew members on Friday, October 23, 2009, at 7:30 p.m., at the Fletcher Jones Foundation Auditorium, Woodbury University, in Burbank, California.

    Among the many artists expected to attend will be writer and director Brad Bird, background artist Anne Guenther, art director Alan Bodner, lead animator Steve Markowski, and Scott Johnston who created the ToonShader software for the film. The panel will be moderated by animator Tom Sito.

    “The Iron Giant is one of those rare films that flawlessly merged CG with traditional animation and represented superior storytelling,” said ASIFA-Hollywood Vice-President Tom Sito. “ASIFA-Hollywood wants to showcase the individuals who made the iconic film, and the event will be extra-special with a rare appearance by Brad Bird."

    Reservations are required for this event.

    does that mean there will be more tickets?

    crap in a hat, if it were at WB that would be way more convenient for me. It's right off the freeway!

    Yes, I'd expect some tickets to be released for availability:

    The Event is Sold Out, however, a limited number of seats may become available. Please check back at this site. Ticket purchases are not refundable. We will be notifying ticket holders with confirmations by email soon.
    I received the confirmation e-mail Monday, we all have thru 5PM today to respond. After that they'll start releasing tix that are not spoken for. Nice that WB stepped up with such a nice venue for the event so more people could attend. Good luck CB!

    It's the least they could do after botching up the marketing and release of the film 10 years ago!

    True, they were so distracted with all the 'The Matrix' $$$ at the time...

    That was so cool. I had an administrative role at WBFA in those days. Among other things, I published the Animated Times, our feature animation in-house newsletter. Thanks OP for the tip, I reconnected with some old coworkers and had Brad autograph my vintage IG crew t shirt.

    Cool, glad to hear you enjoyed it.

    These are great and wonderful nights and opportunities.

    a teaser mini-poster I had signed:



    a Goofy sketch Disney Legend Floyd Norman graciously added to my sketchbook for me. He and his wife sat next to me in the center section, second row. They are so terrifc to talk to, I especially loved hearing about the fabulous time they had at the WDFM opening gala from his great wife.
