Images from PETE’S PREMIERE

WHAT A NIGHT THAT WAS!!! An event we will remember for years. For me it was gratifying to see the students again. When you do a project like this you tend to form bonds with your co-workers.

Those of you in New Jersey can catch the making of PETE’S ODYSSEY on cable and the New Jersey Network (NJN).

Speaking of the premiere - it was the first premiere of one of my films I have attended for the last the films.

When the North/South project, ANIMAGIC, premiered December 7th 1995 in Belfast, I was already working for Disney and that weekend was a big press weekend - prior to the opening of the Disney Institute. So I kind of had to stay. Now, I wish I had gone to see the kids and teachers who participated on the project. Actor Bob Hoskins presented the film…

The next premiere I missed was of OUR WORLD. It premiered in Cologne, Germany at the Ludwig Museum in October of 2005. I missed that one because I was teaching in Europe in Provence. I should have hopped a flight from Marseille.

They say three times are a charm - so this one worked big time. Yea!

Incredibly Animated!!!
