DisneyAnimationBuildingBetween the productions of Meet the Robinsons and Bolt there was a gap of about 6 months. This time was used for research and development. I became instrumental in organizing a 19 week training program for the animation department, which included lectures in anatomy and biomechanics by paleontologist Dr. Stuart Sumida, animal behavior and psychology lectures headed by Lauren Henry of Talented Animals, a Los Angeles based animal training and talent agency, along with acting classes led by Todd Rohrbacher from the Actors Comedy Studio.
