A bit of nostalgia for you. I just saw this sequence again after about twenty years. I was struck by how beautiful it is. The sequence was animated by John Pomeroy, who served as Littlefoot’s Directing Animator. John skillfully handled a baby meeting his mother and reacting to the bold new world around him. This tender moment is easily my favorite shot in the film, just ahead of the birth of Spike.
Tonko House is off to an incredible start in their first year. Now they’re getting involved with local schools in “The Dam Keeper Education Project,” a program inspired by their first film, The Dam Keeper. Dice and Robert first spoke of the program in our exclusive interview last awards season. Check out the video below to see what it’s all about.
