In this interview with indianexpress.com, veteran Disney animator Mark Henn speaks about how he became an animator and shares his advice for aspiring animators.

When did you realise you wanted to become an animator? Did a particular film inspire you?

Yes, it was a boyhood dream for me. I was pretty young, probably 10-year-old or less, when I saw my first Disney film, Cinderella. And that was very influential for me. Another film I saw early in my youth was a film called The Reluctant Dragon, which was a behind-the-scenes film on a person going to Disney Studios. They go into an animator’s office, and you see an animator actually drawing and making animation at Disney and when I saw that, I was pretty much hooked as a small boy. So if you asked me then what I wanted to become, I would have told you, ‘I want to grow up to be a Disney animator.’

You are a supervising animator. What are your duties?

I and other supervisors are responsible for setting the style and direction of a particular character. We work with other animators to make sure there is a consistent style of animation and an acting quality that the directors want to see in the film. That’s a big part of what the supervising animators do.
