Kathy Altieri has so much energy and enthusiasm for animation, it's hard to believe she's worked at the craft as long as she has. (Jaded, she is not ...)

Plunging into television cartoons in the 1980s, Kathy worked on dozens of small-screen shows before joining Disney Feature Animation to participate in a string of Disney hits running from Little Mermaid to Hunchback of Notre Dame. (She was background supervisor on Aladdin.) Among the first artists hired by Jeffrey Katzenberg when DreamWorks was set up, she today works as a production designer on DWA features.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Kathy on several occasions. She is an inspiration, and if we could figure out how to plug her into the power grid, the West Coast would never want for electricity again :0)

It doesn't matter who I am-it matters who Kathy is and who you are-the business representative. I think there's things that you shouldn't post about here even if Slashfilm and other blogs are doing it. It doesn't do anyone any service.

So it seems we have a difference of opinion.

Sarcasm and silliness run amok, that's all.

I took figure drawing classes alongside Kathy a while back and I always enjoyed talking to her during breaks because she's intelligent, interesting and she's an authentic and genuinely nice person. It was a couple years before I found out who she really was and what a remarkable career she has already had in the animation business. I really admire talented people who don't feel they need to brag about who they are or where they came from, and classy people like her are a main reason I enjoy working in the field of animation.
