"M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-EEEEE!!!"



YAY! The official press release has rolled out and I can FINALLY say what I've been working on for the past year!! These Mickey Mouse shorts are under 4 minutes, look beautiful and are actually funny!

It was a sort of homecoming coming to Disney; working again with folks like Paul Rudish (who's the exec. producer on these shorts), Jenny Gase-Baker, Aaron Springer, Chris Savino, Derek Dressler, Darrick Bachman, Clay Morrow, Chris Roszak, Chris Hacker, Joseph Holt, Illya Owens, Alex Kirwan, Dave Wasson, Robert Lacko and Stephen DeStefano--all whom I've worked with over the past 12, 13 or so years (mostly on Samurai Jack, Star Wars: Clone Wars, etc)--as well as new, talented friends like Justin Martin, Justin Parpan, Narina Sokolova, Rae McCarson, Alonso Ramirez Ramos, Greg Levitan, Kali Fontecchio, Tara Billinger, Jasmine Bocz and Todd Popp, Steve Lininger, John Chang and Monica Mitchell.

Saw this today and thought it was terriffic! I generally don't care for Mickey as there's not a lot of character there. This time, he felt the real hero. This was stylish and fun. Made me smile lots. Well done, dood!

Thanks for the kind words! Yeah, Paul Rudish's intention was to make Mickey an actual "character" again, versus sterile corporate logo. He has such love for Disney history, so it never comes off as cynical or ironic.

Andy, this is a really great short, I can't wait to see the others! I went to CalArts with Paul Rudish, this is really up his alley! If ever you guys need any help, look me up!
