Don Bluth rocks! I got to meet him once in Dallas right before he started fox. He was trying to tell me something about finding the secret of great animted features being fairytales. He could have just been pulling my leg.

I've learned so much about character design from two guys that worked with Bluth at Fox, David Lux and Troy Saliba.
Troy has to be the greatest traditional animator I have ever seen. Everything you love about Bluth is in his animation.

Anyway, you have great taste my friend. Keep up the fantastic work.

Cheers!

Congratulations! I must say I had no ideal that you directed the Shark and the Piano. I remember seeing it in high school at the Egyptian Theatre and being absolutely blown away by it! Wonderful work!

Awesome interview Gabriele, you have worked with some awesome people. Man if only Nicolas Marlet, Carlos Grangel, Tony Fucile , Joe Moshier and Don Bluth, would do a Blog. What do you think? Are they just shy, or do you think they are to good to do a blog? Man I hope not. That would be Awesome man. Totally awesome!

Thanks guys.

kelsey- Thanks. Actually David Lux is working here at Dreamworks. Can you tell me a bit more about Troy Saliba? Do you know which scenes he animated.

jparpan- Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed "The Shark and The Piano". I didn't know that it was screened at the Egyptian Theater.

the fan- Thanks. I suggested to Nicolas to do a Blog but he is not really into that. It is a pity because his sketch books are gorgeous. He also did a beautiful short called "Butterfly" that I hope he will decide to show it sometimes in the future.

Dave and Troy worked together at Fox. He could tell you for certain. I remember some scenes from Anistasia and some fantastic animation from a Disney tv show that had the Marsupilami from Spirou et Fantasio. I have no idea what that was doing in a Disney show, but it was animated great.

Hey, if you talk to Dave tell him to email me. I've been wanting to catch up. :) He's a super cool guy and a great storyteller. Hey tell him to find me at San Diego like last time. HA.

...and get me some coffee while your at it. Just kidding.
