Mushka: Workshop with Andreas Deja
Disney legend Andreas Deja began perfecting his mastery of hand-drawn animation as a boy in Germany. At 10, he first applied to work at Disney, and began his legendary career at the studio at 23 with The Black Cauldron (1985). Since then, with his immense talent with pencil and paper, he brought life to such iconic characters as Gaston, Jafar, Mickey Mouse, and Tigger. Always pushing himself and his craft, Andreas left Disney in 2011 to pursue personal projects. His animation blog, Deja View, receives millions of views and serves as an invaluable resource for aspiring animators. Now, as a first-time writer and director, Andreas presents Mushka, a beautiful and touching tale of a young girl raising a tiger cub in Russia. Andreas will also present behind-the-scenes artwork, answer questions, and lead the audience in a drawing activity with his latest creation.
Be sure to bring paper and pencils to draw along.
Recommended for ages 6 and up.
