Talking with Con Pederson

  • . but never quite finished because at that point I discovered the animation school over in Theater Arts at UCLA
  • . Somebody told me that it was a lot of fun doing animation so I thought I'd try it, and made a couple of student films
  • . WM: What were your student films like? CP: They were little cartoons, inspired by UPA, which in those days was the avant-garde of animation
  • . They had shipped me off to the First Armor Division in Louisiana, from which nobody was ever known to escape short of their time, but Walt Disney personally brought me to the attention of Werner von Braun because they had just got an animation camera there and didn't know how to use it
  • . WM: You were a natural person to work on 2001 since you had such an extensive background in both Space and animation
  • . He was a terrific artist, just out of school, and fit immediately into the animation business doing backgrounds
  • . WM: Computers also actually make animation and special effects international

  • . They had moved away from their animation roots a little, had made some stinkers of films (at least by their standards) and had made some poor investment decisions
  • . The combination of live action and animation was nothing new in 1977 and even the Walt Disney Company had had a few attempts at the idea - most notably the very successful Mary Poppins from 1964 and Bedknobs and Broomsticks
  • . Still, if nothing else came from the nadir that produced efforts like this, the Walt Disney Company learned their lesson well and came roaring back with a succession of successful animation classics in the eighties and nineties
  • . The animation is hardly state of the art now and even for 1977 was not especially good
  • . Overall, this is quite possibly the worst film to emanate from the Di$ney studios since they started churning out animated film classics way back in 1937 with Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs , and its only redeeming feature is that it is probably the kick in the rear that the studio needed to get back to doing what it does better than anyone else, and has done since the very beginning - animation, pure and simple

That's how I got started; I took every available class in commercial, narration, animation and that's the best way to know about the business." >< MaryKayBergman says, "Of course, it helps if you live in a major city like LA or NY or Chicago, but nowadays with the help of ISDN lines, more and more people are getting into voicework." >< Next question: >< (Mickey) What is the recording process like, for when you recorded voices for "Hercules" as well as the other projects you've done? Do you get shown the storyboards, hear from the director about your role and the situation, etc.? In the recording session are you playing off the other actors or by yourself? >< >< MaryKayBergman says, ""Sounds like you know a little about the process!" >< Mickey bows >< MaryKayBergman says, "On Hercules, I met with the directors and they showed me character sketches and some of the background pre-production art first..." >< MaryKayBergman says, "Then we had a script to work from and tried out several voices for each character, til we found the ones they liked the best."
