March focuses on Production Technology and has a number of special contributors and features. J. Paul Peszko discovers how DreamWorks integrated digital technology with traditional animation for their latest release "The Road to El Dorado." Eric Huelsman interviews Mike Milne, the man behind the amazing "Walking with Dinosaurs," a show which took Britain by storm and is now coming to the U.S. Howard Beckerman takes a historical look at a few early "real-time" animation techniques, like Mobilux Lumia. We also profile Petrov's Oscar hopeful "The Old Man and the Sea," and Chuck Jones and Charles Solomon remember Disney legend Marc Davis. Dr. Edwin Catmull, computer graphics guru, also takes the 10 question challenge, a new monthly feature.
This month, we are also starting a new regular column. Lee Dannacher will profile a new Internet animation company each and every month. Lee kicks off her column with a closer look at Mondo Media, makers of such Web hits as "Thugs on Film" and "Like, News."
