In Memory of Joe Ranft 1960-2005
Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of Joe's death. I wanted to post something that remembered not only a great story artist but also a great person. I've met Joe a couple of times and even interviewed with him at Pixar but didn't have the pleasure of actually working with him. But fortunately for me I work with and know alot of people that have and through them I've feel like I know him. This video is of Joe doing a an impromptu magic trick while he was working at Disney in the mid 80's. Joe you are missed. (Sorry there's no audio. It's my first attempt at uploading to YouTube.)
If you don't know who Joe is here's a few links:
