Andreas Deja

Yesterday and today was a glorious day for animation in Viborg! We had Andreas Deja giving a 2 hour lecture this morning, and yesterday i was honoured and lucky to interview him for the school's website!

For those who don't know who Andreas Deja is (shame on you), he's been an animator at Disney for 30 years, since The Black Cauldron times. He's been a supervising animator for characters like Roger Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Gaston (Beauty and The Beast), Jaffar (Aladdin), Triton  (The Little Mermaid), Scar (Lion King), Adult Hercules (Hercules) Lilo (Lilo & Stitch), and Mama Odie (The Princess and The Frog).

What can i say more... Just that Lion King was the first movie i saw at the cinema when i was a kid. Very strong movie, and his work speaks by itself!

You can visit his blog with great material for study:
