European Fall Trip: Amsterdam, 10/28 – 11/2

  |   Colleagues, Feature Films, Short Films

Next stop: Amsterdam | The Klik! Amsterdam Film Festival!


I was invited to judge the KLIK! Animation Festival in Amsterdam and had such a lovely time…


I spoke in a “heart-to-heart” about working in the big studios with my beloved colleague and Disney supervisor, Margie Daniels – moderated by Klik’s Tünde Vollenbroek.



I also introduced Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet — where an exuberant audience said hello to Director Roger Allers back home in LA:


I also had a full load of “consultation shifts” where I was reviewing portfolios and talking shop with students and professionals.
Great turn out.




It was an amazing 5 days of non-stop film-watching — and making new friends!

And seeing old friends…!!

We also awarded to prizes to 2 Dutch filmmakers:
Best Humor went to Paniek! by Daan Velsink and Joost Lieuwma.




And Best Craftsmanship went Zeezucht (Jonas and the Sea) by Marlies van der Wel.



What a great line-up of films, wonderful people and an extraordinary backdrop…




To Yvonne and Tunde — thank you for such a lovely invitation and such a wonderful time…


My love and ENORMOUS thanks to Eeke for going beyond the call, each and every day.




I could not have been looked after better.


See you all again soon.
