The Animated Journey Podcast with Angela Entzminger

A message from one of our alums, Angela Entzminger!


I am pleased to announce that I have completed one of my New Year’s Resolutions — start a podcast!

“What is a podcast?” you ask?

It’s like a radio show that you download FOR FREE from the iTunes store and listen on your phone, computer or tablet.

The show is called The Animated Journey with Angela Entzminger and each week I interview professionals working in the animation industry in television, film and games.

You can download the two episodes below TODAY on iTunes:

Mel Shaw: An Animator on Horseback

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 5.09.07 PMThe Walt Disney Family Museum is pleased to present Mel Shaw: An Animator on Horseback. Open from January 13 to September 12, 2016, this exhibition is the first-ever retrospective of the life and work of Disney Legend Mel Shaw (1914–2012)—an artist and storyteller whose skills were in demand by the icons of Hollywood, from Orson Welles to Walt Disney. Shaw’s own life story as an artist, creative entrepreneur, and master horseman is as romantic and adventuresome as the animated stories he helped bring to life. The exhibition is guest-curated by Academy Award®-nominated producer Don Hahn (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Maleficent).

Date: Jan 13, 2016 – Sep 12, 2016

Location: Walt Disney Family Museum
