Tyler Joins Walt Disney Animation Studios


So things have been pretty quiet this winter on the Base14 Blog, but that’s all with good reason. Those of you that follow my personal Twitter account know this already, but I was recently recruited by Walt Disney Animation Studios to work in the Layout Department on their upcoming feature film “Frozen.” After many years of working on animated shorts, the chance to work on a feature was very exciting. So I’m happy to report that I’ve settled in at the studio and am thrilled to be involved in such a rich legacy of animated filmmaking.

The best part is that Base14 isn’t going anywhere. I can still manage the company in my spare time, so we’ll continue our role as a producer of original animated content. “The Girl and the Fox” still has a handful of screenings planned for 2013, and our next short film “Rain Dance” is in the final stages of post-production. The released date had to be delayed from 2012 to 2013 because of a slowed-down production process, but rest assured the film is still on a path to completion. It can then pick up a festival run right where “The Girl and the Fox” left off, so we’re very happy to have new content to share with many of our old, familiar audiences.

I apologize for the lapse in posts, but it’s been a crazy few months transitioning to my new roles and responsibilities. Rest assured all news about Base14 films will continue to be posted right here on Base14.com! And remember you can track our blog updates on our Twitter and Facebook Pages as well. Thanks to all our fans to their continued support!
