John Lasseter on the Future of Animation

Last Monday Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science hosted the Marc Davis Lecture, which this year was a panel talk. Among the panelists was John Lasseter who spoke on the future of animation. One of my favorite quotes from the night was Lasseter’s insistence that art is not dependent on the tools used. “No one goes to Milt Kahl – or Marc Davis or Ollie Johnston or Frank Thomas – ‘Wow’ what pencil did you use?”

More quotes from The Development of the Digital Animator can be found on AMPAS’ YouTube site.
