With a full afternoon planned at Disney Feature Animation, the group wasted no time getting started. Our host, Stephanie Morse, toured us through the maze of halls, with stops every now and again to check out walls adorned with artwork from Frozen, their upcoming feature set for release this coming November 27th. Soon, however, it was back to the screening room for audience Q&A.
Once again, our filmmakers displayed great patience as they answered mostly the same set of questions they’ve been answering at numerous screenings, interviews and meetings ever since they were nominated. I enjoy these Q&A sessions because though the questions may be the same, each time a filmmaker speaks, they add something new, share greater details or a new story you haven’t heard before. You never know what tasty tidbits they may share in a moment of fatigue.
