THE ART OF ZOOTOPIA SIGNING/PANEL

DSC_0068

Just 8 days after Zootopia’s  theater release date, Gallery Nucleus held a Zootopia Art panel and autograph signing event!

Zootopia fans lined up early morning at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA to buy the Zoopia Artbook ($40.00) and attend the artist panel. Special guests artists included:

  • Matthias Lechner (Art Director Environments)
  • Cory Loftis (Art Director Character)
  • Fawn Veerasunthorn (Story Artist)
  • Normand Lemay (Story Artist)
  • Kira Lehtomaki (Animation Supervisor)
  • Benson Shum (Animator Trent)
  • Trent Correy (Animator)

All of the special guests artists were behind the scenes and part of the development work for the movie, ZOOTOPIA!

During the panel, the artists explained their role and responsibilities during the production of Zootopia, showing us a step by step “In the Making of-” process of their work. Unfortunately, media was not allowed to take photos or videos of during the panel.

After the very informative panel, we were able to get our newly purchased Zootopia Artbook autographed by the artists.  The Artbook was sold at the venue for $40.00, alongside art prints sent by Disney for Gallery Nucleus, which be still be purchased here.

I can personally say that by attending this event and with the exclusive information/behind the scenes process demonstrated, it changed the way I watched the movie. From a fan’s point of view to an artistic point of view. For those who didn’t attend the event, we can only hope the DVD will feature a “The Art of Zootopia” segment.
