AWN is pleased to announce the publication of a very special issue of Animation World Magazine honoring the lifetime achievement of visionary animation filmmaker, historian and educator, Dr. William Moritz. The edition features Moritz's piece on effects whiz Con Pederson.

This tribute issue of Animation World Magazine celebrates Bill's tremendous legacy and hopefully will introduce his work to an entire new generation of animation professionals, students and historians. Over the years, Bill wrote 13 articles for AWN, all of which are republished in their entirety. In addition, this issue includes a number of other articles related to his work, as well as special tributes from more than two dozen colleagues and institutions within the international animation community

Bill's tragic passing March 12, on the heels of the publication of his life's work, OPTICAL POETRY: THE LIFE AND WORK OF OSKAR FISCHINGER, leaves a tremendous void in the animation community. He brought passion and enthusiasm to his films, his writing, his teaching and to everyone he met. It is our hope that this tribute issue captures some of the flavor of his work, his philosophy and the impact he had on our industry.

Please enjoy Animation World Magazine's special tribute to Dr. William Moritz.

With Respect and Admiration,

Ron Diamond and Dan SartoCo-Publishers
