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. Michael tells DnA about the importance of seeking the “truth” of a setting before adding the Disney “panache.” Plus he discusses his first experience with CGI and how it completely changes the process of making animation.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
