Allow us to introduce Rich Moore.

He is an Emmy Award-winning director for his work on The Simpsons and Futurama and an Annie Award-winning director for Futurama. His recent accolades include an Annie Award for Directing in an Animated Feature Production and an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature — both for Wreck-It-Ralph by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

And one last thing — he is our Summer 2013 Graduation speaker. We are super excited to have someone with Rich’s credentials speak at our graduation. He will no doubt share the wisdom and inspiration … and we cannot wait. Thank you for joining us, Rich.

Summer 2013 Graduation and Gala
Saturday, August 3
We have a big celebration planned with Classes 25, 26, 27, and 28. With such a big event, we must limit attendance to the graduating classes only — with two (2) guests per graduate. However, all Animation Mentor students and alumni — along with two (2) guests per attendee — are welcome to the Gala immediately following graduation. Circle the date — Saturday, August 3 — and see you in San Francisco.
