Walt Disney Animation StudiosArt Director of Disney's Frozen
FROM Michael Giaimo
The Art of Frozen A vast team of artists and computer designers at Walt Disney Animation Studios spent five years on the research and design of Frozen – which involved traveling to Norway and studying its “stave” churches and traditional folk art; and meeting with physicists at Cal Tech to learn about snow. The film’s executive producer was John Lasseter and the man responsible for overall look was art director Michael Giaimo, who also created the look for Pocahontas.
