NYU’s John Canemaker to Lecture at MoMA

September 15, 2010

John Canemaker, Academy Award–winning animation filmmaker, author, and professor in the Kanbar Institute of Film & Television at the Tisch Shool of the Arts, will present an illustrated lecture based on his new book Two Guys Named Joe (Disney Editions, 2010) at the Museum of Modern Art on Friday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m.

Two Guys Named Joe is an entertaining and insightful portrait of the legendary animation storytellers Joe Grant (1908–2005) and Joe Ranft (1960–2005). In his long career at Disney, Grant helped create such masterworks as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Pinocchio (1940), Fantasia (1940), Dumbo (1941), Make Mine Music (1946), and Lady and the Tramp (1955), as well as more recent hits like Beauty and the Beast (1991) and The Lion King (1994). Ranft, a Pixar creative cofounder and storyboard artist, is widely celebrated for his imaginative and irreverent contributions to such recent classics as The Brave Little Toaster (1987), Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), The Little Mermaid (1989), Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Toy Story (1995), James and the Giant Peach (1996), Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001), and Cars (2006).

Following the lecture, Canemaker will sign copies of his book.
