NYC – Blue Sky at Night

ice-age

 Peter de Seve writes on his blog:

I’m honored to have been invited by Blue Sky Studios and the Society of Illustrators of New York to host a presentation on Thursday, September 24th at the Society, describing Blue Sky’s process of animating Ice Age, Dawn of the Dinosaurs. With the help of my four supremely talented Blue Sky pals:

 

Mr. Michael Defeo – Sculpting Supervisor

Mr. Michael Knapp – Art Director

Mr.Tony Maki – Story Artist

Mr. Galen Chu – Supervising Animator

 

We’ll take you step by step in the development of a single character- Buck, the slightly unhinged weasel, and the sequence “Campfire,” one of the most dramatic and hilarious of the film. We’ll show you Buck’s development from my designs on paper, to modeling him in clay and computer, to storyboards and finally, to the fully animated sequence. The evening will end with a Q&A followed by drinks at the Society’s bar where you’ll also have the pleasure of being surrounded with work by some of the masters of illustration like Norman Rockwell (his stagecoach mural hangs over the bar!), Winsor McCay and Harvey Dunn among others. 

 

I hope some of you can make it.

 

Society of Illustrators is located at 128 East 63rd Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues) New York, NY 10065.
