The June Acrobat Issue Of Animation World Magazine Is Now On-Line!

This Month: Summer's Greatest Hits...

This month Animation World Magazine is featuring profiles of the

summer's biggest animated films like Disney's monster budgeted,

"Dinosaur," Fox's "Titan, A.E." and Aardman's "Chicken Run." Wendy

Jackson talks with some of the animators behind "Dinosaur" and Larry

Lauria presents the first part of a two part chat with Gary Goldman

and Don Bluth, the animation team behind the long-awaited "Titan,

A.E." Andrew Osmond went behind the scenes of "Chicken Run," with an

exciting trip to the Aardman studios. While Mark Evanier pays tribute

to June Foray as Rocky and Bullwinkle hit the big screen.

We are also featuring three articles on commercials: J. Paul Peszko

profiles the digital cars created by Digital Domain for General

Motors; Karen Raugust finds out a little more about how advertising

is creeping into some of our favorite Webisodes; and Martin "Dr.

Toon" Goodman ponders why political candidates don't use animation in

their ad campaigns.

As if that isn't enough...we are also kicking off a very exciting

series of articles involving the new CGI film "Casper's Haunted

Christmas." In other features we are showcasing a special historical

profile of the Zagreb World Festival of Animated Films by Borivoj

Dovnikovic, who has been involved with the festival since its

inception. Glenn Vilppu starts a new series of articles based on his

new book about sketching on location, while Fred Patten looks at all

the incarnations of Kimba, the White Lion.

Of course, there's even more like Internet company profiles and a

review of E3. This Acrobat issue is available at
