Burny Mattinson has been a fixture at the Disney Co. since Dragnet was shooting on the lot ...
Starting at the studio as a teenager when the place was known as "Walt Disney Productions," Burny has worked through multiple management changes at 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank California. (You can hear excellent podcasts from Mr. Mattinson about his lengthy career here, on The Animation Podcast.)
With this installment, we roam further afield, talking to Burny about his artistic and career influences, how he attacks story problems when boarding animated features, and some of the projects he worked on that he wishes had made it to full production, but didn't.
