Today in the afternoon I went to the Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse "Get a Horse". Here's a link:
I really loved the short! You can see the short in theaters when the movie Frozen comes out to theatres! The whole thing was excellent and I learned how they made the short! Here's a few picture of me with Lauren MacMullan (Fun Fact: Did you know that she is the first female director to ever work in Disney?) and the legendary Disney animator, Eric Goldberg (He is one of the few Disney animators who still knows how to do 2D animation and he directed Pocahontas).
Oh by the way, did I tell you that they were handing out posters to be signed by Eric and Lauren?

On Saturday, In the morning, I went to Saint Brigid's Centre for the arts, to see "The Blue Umbrella" finding stories and staying true to their heart. Here's a link: https://www.animationfestival.ca/index.php?option=com_oiaf&task=showevent&i=1010#1010
The whole thing was awesome!!!!! I loved how Saschaka Unseld explained the process of the short, from the pitch to the final version! I just love professional developments! Any who, I got a picture of me with Saschaka Unseld signing a poster that they were handing out for free!
Here's a little clip of the blue umbrella!
Then, I had lunch at the National Gallery of Art!
