I POSTED THIS EVERYWHERE EXCEPT HERE OOPS
okay so, last night i went to a lecture by glen keane, my favorite animator and my role model. it was one of the best experiences of my life. the end.
okay no i have to say a little more than that. his lecture was amazing and inspiring (and I took SO MANY NOTES) and seeing drawings and animation from him i’ve never seen before was fantastic
and then in his Q&A I asked him about “dark rapunzel” and he SAID SOME STUFF THAT I DON’T KNOW IF I’M ALLOWED TO POST HERE BECAUSE HE MADE A JOKE ABOUT HAVING TO KILL EVERYONE IN THE ROOM FOR SECRECY REASONS
after I was the very last one to get something signed/drawn (the head of the animation department let me go up after I told him i was an accepted student. PERKS.)
and i talked to glen as he doodled and thanked him and fangirled a lot. the french phrase there was the motto/theme of his version of tangled, the dark one. and god, that film would have been unspeakably amazing.
so yes: it was wonderful. if you ever get the chance to see Glen talk, DO NOT MISS IT.
Wait, what’s “dark Rapunzel?”
