Funny Story!

So I went to the John Canemaker shindig last night which great. Amongst other things Mr. Canemaker presented was a recent film 'Chuck Jones, memories of childhood'. A really great film in which Canemaker produced and helped conduct the interview with Jones. He proceeded to tell the crowd that he shared a close relationship with Jones that spanned thirty years until Jones' death a few years ago. During the Q&A, he asked if anyone had any questions on animation history, bearing in mind that he's met everyone from Richard Williams to the Nine Old Men, when one pompous culture vulture or college tutor dropped the clanger - 'Have you ever met Chuck Jones'? Fookin' hilarious!

It was really good. It was a thing set up by IADT and was mostly tutors and students from the college with the odd person blagging their way in (me!). It could have been a much bigger thing had it been advertised and available to joe public but I guess at the end of the day it was a college thing.
