Animation ace Max Howard speaks on his journey so far

Disney, through the decades, has whipped out several animation legends such as Milt Khal, Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston and, in more recent times, Richard Williams. These men have pushed the envelope in pioneering animation techniques that is practiced in today's generation of animation filmmaking.

 

One such legend is Max Howard - an actor, an author - he has worked in some of Disney's most memorable films, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King. As former President of Warner Bros Feature Animation he oversaw such hit movies as The Iron Giant and Space Jam. At DreamWorks, he was co-executive producer for Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron.

 

By using animation as a means to bring social and health messages to developing countries in Africa, the Caribbean and South America, Max has worked with UNICEF throughout his sprawling animation career. At present, he is the President of Exodus Film Group which specializes in producing independent animated feature films - the animated feature Igor was their first film, and currently The Hero of Color City and Bunyan and Babe are in production.
