"don hahn" Discussed on The Bancroft Brothers Animation Podcast

"I don't have a question. Was that a question? Oh my God. Yeah, we have other questions. We can get some. Okay, Chris, right anyway, yeah, that on the back for that. That was a really good point. Let's go to questions. And can you say on for like ten minutes because we're right at time? Because here's a good one. There's two people. I'm going to pop them up that are asking. This one spinster mimic says not an industry question and I apologize, but can you still do this stitch voice? Hold on. Yeah, put a pit on that. How many times have you been asked to do that? And here's a related one too. What, oh no, sorry. That was I picked the wrong one. Here it is. When did you know you had a flare with voice at voices for voice acting? So the heart of this question is, how did you get the gig to be now obviously you're directing the film? I'm assuming you're doing the voices as you're pitching for the voice of stitch is that did that just naturally evolve? And humble's Chris that I know, you probably were fighting it. Like, don't people are going, you should do the voice. Is my assumption. Is that how it all happened? So I have to credit dean for that because yeah, whenever I pitch, I would always use that voice to annoy people and I would call it like I'd fall Kelly at berry on the phone when we were on the main lot working and beating the beast. They call him up on the phone. Hello. What do you do? And so I would do that voice and stuff. So I was just assigned that voice to stitch when I pitched the boards. The original concept was that stitch would never speak. He was never going to Panama. So that's where we embarked upon that as our goal. Later on, he became obviously would have to say things now and then. But we were really concerned because we didn't want we knew the studio well enough to know that should we hire someone, they would want to hire somebody like a known actor. And then we would be in trouble because we didn't want to end up in a situation where we were directing somebody in a booth and saying, no, no, mister Redford, we just want you to go. Right, right. If we get somebody who's a prominent actor, we're going to be in this really weird place because they're going to be unhappy if they do what we want them to do or the studio will say, can they can't they just talk more? And now suddenly stitch is speaking too much, and it would ruin the character. So dean said, why don't you just do the voice Chris? You do the voice and we'll see how it goes. So I started doing the voice. And it all seemed to work out until the very end of the movie we realized he was going to have to say a bit. And he says that whole thing about my family. You know, they're little in their broken, but they're still good. And that may be nervous because I was like, okay, I'm not an actor. I know where I belong and is not recording to the recording these things. So that day I thought we could lose this whole thing, so I said, okay, dean today, I'll be an actor. I'm going to go in the booth and you direct me and I'll do whatever you tell me to do. I will do my very, very best. And if this doesn't work out, we'll figure out what to do next. We'll change gears. So dean directed me. He nuanced that whole little speech. I did my very, very best, we put it in the film. And, you know, it worked out, but it was interesting because whenever we got our audience comment cards at the end of a test screening, the lowest rated thing was consistently stitches voice. Always stitches voice. Yeah. But by that point, Jeffrey katzenberg was out of the studio, right? So there wasn't anything executive gun. All right, let's can Chris. Let's get him out. Now, now just a sub question to that. Did they pitch shift it at all? Was it just pure you? Okay. I think nowadays they pit shifted a bit because I think my voice has dropped a little bit I had a little change in my voice. So I think nowadays the pitch shift it up just a little bit. Just a recording for a Christmas show. A Christmas parade at one of the parks. Okay. This shows up. All right, here's another question from Destin. What was your favorite slash film slash project to work on? I guess this could be a book. It could be a web comic kiss Lou. It could be anything. I'd have to say that they were all this is such a cop out answer, but it's true. They're all special for some reason or another. I always look back at Beauty and the Beast. As being like the perfect project as far as the schedule, the crew, it had the greatest story crew. I learned so much. It was at gombert. It was Joe ramse Joe grant. Brenda Chapman, Kelly asbury, everybody on the story crew. So roger allers roger Allen. And then Kirk and Gary who were such great gracious intelligent wonderful directors on that whole thing. And Don Hahn, the producer, who was so kind and patient and never panicked, even when things looked dark, he was just this calming presence, so that when I looked upon as being the greatest learning experience I ever had, but Mulan, I'm so desperately proud of that. And I love the people that worked on it. And I loved being on it. Lilo and stitch because of the same things. That was a dream project because it was such a weird quirky thing. And that's a whole other discussion that needs to be had. Yeah. Part two and then Lion King, Lion King the same thing for like for what, for the disaster that befell me, but I came out of it and what I learned on that. And again, working with roger and Brenda and it was just and dawn, again. All right. Lightning round. Velociraptor blue. What is your favorite dragon and how to train your dragon? Oh, toothless. Surely. There it is. Of course. Oh yeah. This is almost yes or no. Landing camp says at pencil. Oh, were you involved with the Lena stitch prequel comics for.

"Going on that. America's general admitting that taliban now control more than half of the four hundred districts in the country. And it's a taliban who have strategic momentum. There you go. That's where things are in afghanistan right now. Did you know that we've been bombing in afghanistan every day for two weeks. I didn't know that while launching from that's how little attention people pay play to this pay and taliban now has about half the country and they've They've got all rural areas so now they're attacking the major cities i keep hearing people say it's fear that the violence will spread and afghan will Afghanistan will find itself in a civil war. This and i want to call a dear afghanistan. you are in a civil war. Well that and there are concerns that the taliban could retake the country. is there. anybody saying that's not going to happen. Anybody now there are some who think the provincial capitals can be held the cities but what does that mean. How would you feel. it means. you're not gonna get your head sought off if you live in one. How would you feel if washington. Dc was safe but the rest of the country was under the control of the taliban area. I hear you anyway. That's that story and we'll talk about that another day. So i got into this conversation with my son last night and i wanted to get some different perspectives on this. So we've got joe nice perspective join. I are almost exactly the same age. Alex jones ten days apart while you're both twenty eight. Yes uh-huh joe. Ten days older than me which explains his maturity. Then we have Like an another decade down you get to michelangelo. And then you get another decade or so down to alex so we got like three generations practically Of my i pick him up for football practice last night and they're starting to practice in pads tonight for the first time so that'll be kind of interesting to see when they're actually starting to hit each other or some sort of federal law state law. You have to have eight practices before you're allowed to be in pads. They've got all kinds of rules. The sort of stuff any who. So i got into the conversation about will in school starts pretty soon and you'll be practicing right after school because he thought it was gonna be like you come home from school and then go back. No no no. You'll practice after school. And he said soa where my uniform to school nye said no. You won't where your football uniform to school. You'll wear your normal clothes and then you'll change into your uniform after school. And he said where. I said the locker room and then after practice i suppose you'll take a shower and an input. Your regular clothes back on. I mean that's the way we always didn't he said a shower. What do you mean like. Do we have separate stalls. Well i said. I have no idea the way it works now but certainly when i was young we all stood in one. Great big open room with showerheads coming out of it and took showers including the coaches. I mean so there gene. He was waiting. And we did not have the coaches show us. No cds are all differing things here so he was horrified at the idea of him and other students being naked in a room together now so far. Does that track with your experience in school michelangelo. Yes or no. Did you shout you. did you. Regularly shower in a big room with a bunch of other boys. Nobody's showered period. There was one guy that showered and wanted to be naked all the time and he was by himself so you supposed to be showering. It was optional but everybody look each other. Nobody wanted to do it. Can alex your experience We had one guy who showered everyday after practice but that's because he had religious observances afterwards but he wore a pair of athletic shorts after he was done show Africa with practice. Let everybody else just went home. Sweaty went home in our cars. One home showers for what did did a shower exist. Like did a shower room exists. We have them with you. Just nobody ever used them but we had them. Wow how interesting that is interesting. Do you find it both of you. Michael alex both find it. Weird that for instance. When i was in high school every everyday from fifth grade almost everyday from fifth grade through graduating high school. I showered in a big room full of other people. Does that seem weird. I gotta say kinda does for me. Yeah yeah it does seem weird. Wow i was grateful for that. Because i had to go straight to work after baseball practice in a restaurant i couldn't be stinking. There was no time to go home but so did you get like get all sweaty doing sports or gym class. Or whatever and then put your clothes on your sweat. oh i. I had the luxury of having p. e. the last period of the day because that was our football practice. They use that as part of our football team. So for me i can just go home after football practice. Now the circumstantial at home in your football close or do you put on e. you take off your football close input on like underwear and socks and everything over your sweaty body. Weirder to me than shower. I brought a third set of cloud brought just shorts and a t-shirt shirt that i didn't care if they got ratty and gross. I went home. Showered in them any or text line. Four one five two nine five. Kabc is the day of finished getting all sweaty and everybody showers together over. Is that been gone for dead disco and ladies what's happening with the women these days young women what are what are the practices there so you know now that i think about it. There was only one coach that ever showered with us. No coach nasser hanson. Can you jump on the microphone. You are different Socio economic age group and everything like that right showering group. Yes or no yes yes we were forced to we all you know as i think. Now that you mention. I don't think it was an option. Oh no no it wasn't. They'd monitor you. They checked to make sure everybody shower. We had one Gym teacher in particular. Don hahn camp the dreaded don hahn camp he forced every boy into the shower we all just stood there and looked up. There were thirty boys all stuck together in the in the locker room shower. He stood outside and waited for everybody to to get wet before they could come out so you had to shower. You were weirded out by it. Oh sure yeah. That's weird so the transition was already happening. 'cause you're a little younger than joe and i because i don't know about your experience joe but we all showered and nobody thought it was weird and i and and as far as i know people weren't uncomfortable starting in junior highs we call it. Yeah i think in middle school fifth grade. When i started wrestling in fifth grade and i don't remember being uncomfortable at all really my main. My dad just told me. Yeah and then. You'll sharon them okay. And they were the varying levels of maturity at that age were interesting. You got the sasquatch over there. Who's harry is harry sasquatch. And then i am over here you know like a dolphin not to mention the the fun sticker fairy had had already visited. I don't recall thinking about that. Well you would have if you Played with some of the guys. I play with the seventy four dolphins so those impressive so well. This is new news to me so i guess my son then. Walt probably shower.

Com. If you go there you can find out how that I can help you turn what you love and to what you do come to speak at your event or your conference or your business virtually and hopefully soon as a person work with you in one-on-one calls small group masterminds as well my momentum weekend workshop and retreat in Walt Disney World and a few other things. I'm working on there as well again. Go check out the new Jumanji website, but back to WWE radio. This site has really been in existence in one form or another with its Beginnings. As long as Disneyworld trivia.com since 2003 and the site has gone under a lot of growth and many many changes in terms of content wage nearly 6,000 blog posts new additions including live video The Dream Team project the running team the nation and lots more and today we're going to turn the page to the next chapter 4, w, w radio and our community as well because some things are new but in many ways they're also going to remain the same because wage today. I want to introduce you to the next step in the evolution of w, w radio and a project that I've been working on for more than a year. So I invite you to please go and explain The completely redesigned. Wdw radio.com built from the ground up the interface on both desktop and mobile is all new easy-to-navigate faster and more robust than ever. You can find more of what you're looking for faster and easier than before whether you are new to the show on a site or if you've been here since 2003. There are direct links to favorite content including now more than six hundred episodes of the show going back to 2007 as well as the live broadcasts events and the wwo store. There's also an updated about page as well a new start here page both for new visitors as well those who may want to find some things that they have missed before and as with everything I and collectively we do. This is a work in progress as I will continually be working to improve the site and experience for you and to that end look for even more content on the blog from our amazing. The team as well as new Authors and topics and yes, I'm going to take this opportunity to say if you are interested in possibly becoming a writer for the blog or want to help out in a number of ways including community relations marketing Etc. I will post all of those different opportunities on the site at w w.com contribute the sites and not show and live video is going to continue to share all the worlds of Disney Marvel and Star Wars like I keep saying from the parks to the screens and everything in between an Choi course, most importantly none of this is possible without you w w Is by 4 and with you and you to me are such an incredibly honorable member of our community and you are a member of the community whether you listen to the show whether you engage in the group on Facebook with me on Social Club, Are a member of the WWE you're running team, which you can begin find out more by visiting WW1 watch live. You come to events you engage on social whatever it might be and speaking of community. There's a slight change there too in name only because the quote unquote home and name for our community has for more than a decade been affectionately referred to as the Box people and a lot of people ask me. You know, what what does that mean? We're to come from and actually came from when I first started live broadcasting video from my laptop back in 2007 live streaming was very much in its infancy. And at one time somebody asked me at an event who I was talking to on my computer. I was standing there with my laptop and my webcam and my 3-g card and I'm talking back and forth by myself to the computer and when this person asked me at the event who I was talking to I pointed to my laptop off. And refer to the people who are watching their that there's all these people watching inside this box. Well that name stuck and you sort of latched onto it and the Box people were literally and figuratively born at that moment. But I've always said that you know, I only built the clubhouse and you you populated you call it home invite your friends play Cher and live here and that's why I think the name is so appropriate because wherever it may live be it on our Facebook group originally on our discussion forums, or maybe eventually somewhere else you are the community and this is our clubhouse where we actually sort of plant the steak doesn't really matter and with that off the w w radio club house is going to be the new name for our Facebook group. Now look you will always be a member of the Box people you still live in these boxes both in my hands off. My desk and as I go out to the parks and elsewhere, so you'll it's always the Box people but we're going to call it. Now the w w Clubhouse is going to be the new name of the group on Facebook. She can still get to it by going to ww.com slash Community. Then I'll show you all the different ways to be part of the community, but you can go directly there by going to ww, I didn't change the page. So don't worry. There's not going to be any broken links for you. So that's it for now. Anyway, I have a few other irons in the fire and projects. I've been secretly working on a will reveal to you soon. But in the meantime, I want you to know and remember that everything I do I do it for you and I mean that sincerely and it is not a line. That's something that I truly believe and all I ask in return is that you continue to enjoy the show and site and hopefully it brings you happiness and it has a positive impact on you and God. You please pay that forward and spread the word and invite others to join the community listen to the show. And as always most importantly that you choose the good and be a shining flashlights and examples to others. I believe that positivity is contagious. That's why this community is so special because the people who are there are there for the right reasons they're there because their friends invite them into it. I don't Market it. I don't do any sales funnel and think I don't pay for ads and so because I want the people to be there for the right reasons and that's why it is such a warm welcoming family friendly and to me very special place. So thank you so much for making WWE your home and all you've done for me and more importantly for each other. I love and appreciate you if there's anything you need for me. Just ask me. Okay, because I am here home. View any way that I can and there's always one more little thing because if you saw my very cryptic social post this week. I said that not just something is coming. But some things were coming and I'm not finished yet. So stay tuned. But in the meantime, I want to keep the conversation going so please connect with me on social. I am at Lou Monticello on Twitter Instagram Pinterest LinkedIn. They don't forget to like the WWE page on Facebook as well join the the group at facebook.com. / and again, none of this is possible without you and your help and support page speaking of which I have to give a huge.

Maan jealous cam email me Lou at w w.com will just post in the community on Facebook. Again, for some reason these lines in these songs from Carousel of Progress, which as we know, you know, Walt had his hand in what loved it meant something to him. I love now is the time now is the best time that sort of temporary song for a number of years in the mid seventies and early eighties because this is such an amazing time, but I also thought maybe because I have such fond memories of going with my family during that time. I still hear that song from Space Mountain and that line from Space Mountain playing in my head and it's here's to the Future and you know, that's exactly how I feel about this site show Community and family. So enjoy what we have now, but always keep looking to the Future because I still have more that I've been working on home. I'm going to announce very soon. Stay tuned. I love you. I miss you.

"About it all and I certainly tried not to think about what he might say about making a film about him. So I think he'd be humbled. I think he'd be really humbled by the audience response cuz I know he was about living life little shop opened in all these countries around the world within five years. There was a movie about little shop and there was a big companies playing all over the you know behind the Iron Curtain at the time. There was a company opening engine and just have this huge success, you know about this little story that he hatched in this little man in NC theater. So he was thrilled with that success and I think still home Hold by the audience reaction. So I ran across a note in the Library of Congress that he wrote to be read on opening night of a little shop in Tokyo and thank everyone for coming and told them I hope you enjoy the story and perhaps this can finally be a little payback for all the hours that I've enjoyed Godzilla and Rodan movies. So that says a long Bob Howard was well, I think he would be so incredibly like he said not just home alone, but proud just as you should be, you know, the the reviews are starting to come in New York Times critics pick today. I think it is nothing short of required viewing for any fan whether it be of musical theatre of old Disney animation and from a personal level down. I cannot thank you enough for again continuing to not just tell stories in such a remarkable way, but bring to light off. So many of the people who whose work that we might know but we might not necessarily know the people behind it Howard is on Disney plus right now. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I cannot thank you, Don and everybody who helped to put this film together. So thanks to that means a lot to me coming from you. Especially I've always been a a.

"That we as adults might not recognize ourselves. Yeah. Yeah, and and that was another thing Howard did I mean he bill says it in the movie. He didn't make political theater. He wasn't an AIDS activist necessarily he was certainly sympathetic to all the things that's going on politically during that era but he was a dramatist he was trying to tell stories and we never had conversations about his illness in the room. We never talked about the AIDS crisis or politics. He was always about the movie and always Mazda inevitably you're a you're a product of your times, you know, we will and the 80s and 90s was a time of you know change and wage in Howard was a product of that so did some of that work its way into his work. Yeah, probably but probably not consciously, I guess in making a movie. There's no way you can either put forward a strong point of view. You can do the Rodger Moore kind of documentaries, which I love that are putting forward a point of view about what's going on and an issue. There's another kind of a documentary wage. Yes, I favor which is more of a journalistic point of view where you put forward the facts as you see them or collect them and let the audience be juror in the trial so to speak and I like them because life isn't black and white. I like the gray areas in cuz I think it's more representative of the life and sort of put forward points of view to say. Yeah the Mob song from Beauty and the Beast it's about the AIDS crisis. And the Beast is Howard. Well, some people feel strongly that way Dan Rather the journalists felt that way in Rota op-ed piece and then Los Angeles Times about that how our sister said. No, that's just who he he didn't do that. So that's interesting. You know, what why why a debate about that but there is so to be a journalist and put those fast forward and just say here's the here's what people are saying and you as an audience can decide one way or the other people. Do you know people do people even going back to wake the Sleeping Beauty? You can put out there. You know, here's Michael Eisner. Here's here's where Disney here's Jeffrey katzenberg. Who is the hero whose villain? Well, you know what? There isn't one. There's there's aspects of heroism and villandry and in everybody I suppose and and I think that's what makes us interesting as human beings and as characters on the screen. We're not black and white. We are all these Shades of Grey and so I look for trading that in a film like this to be able say here's here's what people are saying about Howard. What do you think and you know, obviously the film it's a slow reveal on a slow burn, you know talking about Howard is illness and his decision to reveal at a time that he felt comfortable to people what he was going through because so much of it was was wage unknown to so many people are you in all you know able to talk about your experience in terms of when you learned Alan was sick and and his maybe wage The change in his attitude from being whether it going from anger to fear or acceptance how that sort of maybe changed over time. Well when I started working with him, he had just finished a Little Mermaid and and it was becoming a huge hit. You know, he was the Press junket was really successful. I met him for the first time in Orlando and then very soon after in New York. We were working on getting the beast in London and it wasn't coming together very well. And so we may flew to Orlando to meet up with Howard mail and during the mermaid press junket and just try to pitch them the idea of getting involved in in Beauty and the Beast so long in in that became clear that we had to work in Upstate New York at Howard's location and we were naive we honestly thought and it wasn't cuz we were wage block it out or anything else. We just thought oh, he's being a diva. He just won an Oscar and you know, this mermaid is so successful. Okay, so we picked up everybody and I got, you know hotel rooms for everybody at the beautiful. Residence Inn in Fishkill New York, and we said there's an upstairs conference room there, you know the kind of conference room where you'd have a sales meeting about boilers or something like that and I brought it off your piano brought in Howard brought in Donuts every morning and Alan drove over and we would sit there and work through the story and sometimes we would pitch boards and say okay. Here's the opening bell goes to town. She buys a book home of operations get started or you know, or walk through moments and then we would just Workshop those all day long, you know, like we we had this characteristic my character called mrs. Chamomile, and eventually we thought it was too hard for kids to pronounce. So we changed it to mrs. Potts, but she was a character from Upstairs Downstairs. We saw, you know kind of this beloved page maternal character Lumiere was called shawndel in the first versions of his songs. So things evolved and changed and moved. We recorded meetings and demo things and that process we were still unaware of Howard. The dancing was wrong after a while. It was harder and harder for him. He went to meet off and then it became obvious. He was losing weight and and, you know wearing suspenders and just looking not like himself. So that news was sobering home and I think it's like with any of us, you know, if were were unfortunately living through a endemic now where if you hear someone comes down with covideo, you're like shocked about it and she can't help but wisdom the best and and you know, it's it's a shocking reveal and it was at the time but we still worked, you know, we still Dovan we still worked with him and still finished a movie even though he never saw the commercial movie. We still work through all the songs and had a good sense of what it was before he passed so, you know part of it was just not even on our part and and then when you do find out You can a funny way. He became somewhat gentler towards the end of his last somewhat more or less argumentative. He wasn't an argumentative guy, but he was not afraid of expressing his opinion or throwing the occasional ashtray. So he was very clear about what he wanted still was as he got sicker but more gentler but gently about how he expressed himself and obviously we felt a lot of empathy for him and what he must have been going through and now looking back thirty years. It just seems impossible. It's like how did this guy do all this and that lends some here listen to his story on top of it all. Yeah and how weird does not end in in a in for me. It did not end in a sad way because Howard's work continues to live on in films that he he touched and live-action and Stage Productions on land and on sea, what do you think a game? You know looking back. We're looking down Howard might say about his legacy and the things that he created during that time. Um, I don't know. I think he probably would have been self-effacing about it is incredibly proud of little shop and even more so about made but he was always very like I'm not sure this is that good and you know it gosh I hope the audience likes it, you know with this much distance, who knows what he might say something.

"Incredible documentary. Well how it's a good teacher, you know, he famously came into Disney Animation within the first few months and sat down and did that kind of lecture during Little Mermaid wage of which there's a bit in this movie in another bit too in a way. He's he Community where he just went through and said, okay, here's the the the art of the American Broadway musical which is a very American art form. Is that way because characters break into song when they can't express their emotions in any other way. So you're so in love where you're so hateful or you're so envious or you're so happy that you can't do anything about it. And then these are the typical moments you sing about it when you are introducing characters using about it when you are expressing what you want in life when the villains expressing what he or she wants life and so he laid out not only the songs from Little Mermaid, but kind of the Paradigm of what a structure of musicals would be a structure that we've followed ever since And that structure wasn't unique to Howard. It's just he was a student of it and and studied Lerner and loewe and Rodgers and Hammerstein and studied American musical theater and knew it like the back of his hand. So he was able to walk each that to us. So revisiting that was great at also realizing and learning that Howard was a master of adaptation. He wrote some original pieces wage and and they are wonderful but adapting Tina Turner story adapting a Little Mermaid. God bless you, mr. Rosewater that Kurt Vonnegut novel and adapting that into a musical. He really strived on taking someone else's core material and saying, you know, I I really love this for what it is. I love Rodger Corman because it's so corny and cheesy low-budget and I think I can do something with that and then he does he always brings to it a new aspect a new idea that helps gives me that helps dead. Shed new light on it. And so whether that's a musical Choice like Caribbean music for a mermaid or a casting Choice. He always does these mash-ups of style make it a really fresh new idea and that's something I never really thought about before I you know, I've I've sat in meetings with you and I've worked with him but to see him do that on Project after project after project was really interesting and showed a lot about what his approach was. He didn't feel like I have to be completely original here every thought I put down has to be from me only it was the opposite it was how can I take a Pastiche? How can I take someone else's style? How can I take something that's iconic in literature or music and adapt it and use it to my own purposes and that was brilliant because it brings a familiarity to it. We sit down and listen to the score of mermaid or a little shop and yep. Miliar with you know, 50's girl group Greece kind of soundtracks were familiar with a Caribbean music. And so there's a there's warmth in an accessibility to it already before you've songs. And then of course, I'm somebody writes these clever lyrics so however was much more than a Lyricist. He was dramatist director a book writer and a teacher and we were awfully the beneficiaries of all that, you know, talked to very quickly you talked about how there's the you know song for the introduction of hero when the hero's journey and the villain I notice too that there's also a song about food and get this thing's do so I have to imagine we were very much alike, you know from Les Paul songs to To Be Our Guest he always through a little bit of food in his films as well. Yeah, one of my favorite songs from God bless you. Mr. Rosewater is a song called Cheese Nips as a host of a party who invites all these people over and no matter how much of a beautiful spread this Society woman puts out. All these people in her Town go immediately for the Cheese Nips. And and so the whole Eric is like what's the deal of Cheese Nips? You know, no matter what I do. They want the Cheese Nips mixed with Kraft sandwich spread and it's just so delightful. I put it in the movie. You know, I just like this is how hard it is best. You know what we talked about what you took away, you know as the creator of the filmon and the crashing of the film. What kind of lessons do you want or do you think maybe viewers are going to take away from Howard with the film and Howard the man? Well, I I hoped to humanize Howard's so that we can relate to him and that's maybe I'd choose from forty years of being a Disney and and loving Walt Disney's movies all that Waltz tried to do and how we're trying to do was to help create characters that we can relate wage. The audience so that you see a character whether it's some per the rabbit or symbol or whoever that you can say. Yeah. I was once that child I was once or I have a niece that's like that or whatever wage as brilliant Howard was I wanted to somehow humanize who he was that he he didn't go to Yale. He didn't have a great deal of privilege in the theatrical Community very nice middle-class upbringing in Baltimore. Um, yeah, he was gay at a time when being gay was not something that you know, would bring out in the public in the seventies or eighties. I think we're a little more enlightened now about that. So I just want to talk about that. What are the challenges of a human being who happens to be a brilliant human being and what did he bump up against? You know, here's this dark kind of middle-class a Jewish guy from Baltimore why him and to follow that and say, you know, he didn't go to Yale. He went to Indiana University. Well, that's not very special and then he moved to New York. By himself and start a little money. I'm seeing theater in a second floor above a donut shop. Well a very special and and you start to hopefully kind of pull the layers back and see that it was his persistence. It was his uh, yes, he was very clever, but he was also a student of all that so he could he could cite chapter and verse, you know, he would sit down the Beauty and Beast song. I think there's a there's a song to be done and they should dance because in fairy tales dancing is the consummation of love, you know, can't have sex scenes. So you have dances and then he would cite things like the page, you know or g g or, you know have all these references some of which sent us home looking in our encyclopedias at the time cuz we just come here we didn't get it lines like in the in month on screw your courage to the sticking-place or sticking post or whatever. It's like, oh that's from Macbeth. We would go. Oh, yeah. Yeah Macbeth. So here you have a man operating on a month. A level of talent but our huge level of hard work and preparation and then flexing that muscle in preparation into his craft. Well as an audience, I think we can look at that and say oh that's something that's inspiring. That's something that I can do. You know, I'm from a middle-class family. I have obstacles in my life. I might be gay or or off a person of color or you know, whatever and you have obstacles sort of Howard and I think that kind of human story really is something I hope the audience can take away from it and I really got the sense that you left off so much up to the audience to figure out or decide or take away themselves, you know, there's a part where there's a discussion about. You know, how much if any way of of Harold's personal life. Did he put into some of the lyrics for the songs that he wrote and you left in there, you know that there were differing opinions differing opinions and let viewers There's judge for themselves whether Howard was really showing his world through his lyrics and and you know at the very least you were able to change subtly bring light to certain topics that forget children.

"He's 40 to write, and he thought he was just going You know, finish the season and move on. But the Mets last place in August, win the division and beat the Reds in the playoffs, and Willie didn't play from September 9th. All the way into the postseason. So he was off virtually a month because of some busted ribs. Hey, suffered in much are always has the first baseman it is it aside up against the rail in foul territory, So he was shelved for a month. And then finally, he gets a little playing time in the playoffs and the World Series Game one. He's in the line of duty, third in center field. So it's not like he's mid season form, right? Not in this prime, but anyway, Game two is what everybody looks at you when he did fall down when he was really not play well. Talk to Reggie Jackson, who was the center fielder on the A's in that same game, And he said that was the most brutal son he's ever experienced. Oakland in the twilight is pretty bad Half shadows have sun and maids didnt even know he's playing center field that and he came in. Ah, late in the game, And then when he went into the outfield, he thought he was playing right because you know, he went into rusty stop. But don Hahn was in right. Two guys go out to right field and then they both look into the bench, and then they they wave Willie over center and then, sure enough, I have half a minute later, Darren Johnson. It's this loop singles to center and he loses in the life of me locked in the lights. 10 years earlier. Nobody would have thought into government. But now he's 42 so he's done. He's old back. And everybody says Well, don't be maids. Don't be that guy who plays too long before his time and all that stuff, But, you know, I talked to Ricky Henderson and all these guys who played well into the I mean Ricky was playing independent ball in mid Mid forties and almost, you know, almost didn't go to his Hall of Fame ceremony because he had a game. You know that kind of thing, but with with with men, and they all say, you know, you play as long as you can, even if you're the great base. And that's what Willi did they use. Only making $165,000 is not like you know he could go off and make that money elsewhere back then, But anyway, there's a lot. There's a lot more to it. And by the way when he was kneeling at the plate starve. You wanna call? It wasn't because he did anything wrong. It was argue and then defected. Bud Harrelson, right, who called out at the plate on the place? Fosse and no one on the Mets thought that was a good call. Uh, Augie Donatelli, So maid who was on deck was the first of the scene and was arguing vehemently for a teammate. Not because he did wrong, So there's a lot more to the story and everybody who played with the mess that I interviewed just absolutely loved the guy. But what I also loved is the story. You mentioned how, when he got the game, winning hit the 10th inning that he may have degrade Fosse and calling a fastball because he was complaining, and I can't see because of the backdrop and that all may have been kind of a way to get that fastball from Rollie Fingers and he hits it up the middle for a base hit, So I mean, that's and that's the sixth hole, right? That's the brilliant was the game. That was, Yeah, that was the game winning that, but but all those things that happened in the game he just happened in the 12th inning. Get the game winning head and it was after no one count. Willi backs off and says loud enough for rape. Offi to here, said, Man, I can't see that ball. I lost a ball. You see that ball right? And then Willie, get back in there and obviously false. He called the fastball down the middle and Willie punches it into center field for what proved to be the gang went and hit up Rollie Fingers. The Hall of Fame closer and by the way, Rollie Fingers had a great story. We'll rally fingers as a kid in L. A. His favorite player was Willie Mays. He was a center fielder as a kid, so he goes at Dodger Stadium one day. And that is what you want to say that I want to sit beyond center field so I could watch made. So he saw amazing. Then after the game, he went down the parking lot to see if he could see Mae's walk out and all these Dodgers were moving out all the you know pro facts. And Drysdale will's there in a corner of his eye sees Maze on the far door over here to his left, and so starts chasing them down. And get Willie to sign a ball at his car. And Rollie Fingers doesn't see Willie Mays again until the 73 World Series. And then will he get a base hit off him? And then Roddy didn't see Mae's again. You know, there's no interleague play and see him again until he was inducted into the Hall of Fame, So he's a Cooperstown. And he sells Willie the story about how he got the autograph is a kid and then you face them in the World Series, and he said he said, Well, if you don't give me that autograph, I would have drilled your ass on And then he said, No, I wouldn't. I would have done that. But it was a funny story that that is in the book. Yeah. Is you Go ahead. You know God, you you're there going well, I was going to say it's It's a tremendous read and it really It does a good job of getting into a lot of individual stories from his career. I mean, the Spawn Marshall game, which I think the anniversary is in a couple of days. The greatest pitchers duel of all time I do. We're never going to see again extending that We're never going to see a 16 inning game where both starters stay in the game and oh, by the way, Willie Mays hits the game winning home run against Warren Spahn, who throughout his career and you pointed out earlier how he He hit is he got his first major league kid against Warren Spahn a homerun and who would be a sign of things to come?.

use when the Yankees in a match play we were before who do I root for yeah I would for the entire year Yankee fan sorry Jack see that I want to hear it all right you are a you and not a Mets fan this idea that you can be a mess and Yankee fan is a joke there's another word I would use I can't use it all right there is no such thing as both you either are a met fan or you Yankee fan that's it you're not a huge met fan if you're Yankee fan you know you're not if you want to play a match thank you for it's very simple you can't be both you can add an emotional attachment to both the teams you can't do it you're the one or the other so it is I die when I you'd be and I've heard this a lot lately from people no you're not don't give me this nonsense that you yell all while I'm a Yankee fan but I I want to see the Mets good give me a break okay stop stop eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Eric in Manhattan is on a fan hi Eric your ideal man I'm good I'm broke now I call you called a couple days ago I guess that's all I am every you brought it all look I mean you know like I always said I was like my first marriage better to be happy and broke but I mean it's a little you know it's a little it's a little different you know I mean but but but it's what they brought what's working there it is man I'm gonna continue but you know what man right now what we're seeing in in the metrics as soon all the ifs that US mint and give before the season to ourselves and everyone else you know it if the started all stay healthy if the ground continues to be lights out impresario place because attention live from most of the south right around the lives of the you know you get the idea of Conforto can find some consistency with seeing all this come together really it's really amazing and this you know it it's awesome to see it's really exciting and I you know it's you know they got the call lightning in a bottle and JD Davis and yeah he is they certainly had our Davis I don't know JT Davis was a juvenile Gerry Davis was the forty I have no idea no idea yeah I made the trip is guy mileage eighty Davis okay great who's he was when he was playing in April you look good in the winning when Frasier was hard as well Frasier and and and but you know I have no problem with them coming back in the lineup when he you know he earned the right to this part but you know we just need to be a fact that he's getting them now and now you can take them out I mean I've seen this guy you know long term at the met the next few years don't you yeah I know he's Eiji Davis so he's part of the team I was far as yes Sir he's a I look at JD Davis and Erika yeah hopefully I don't see you lose any more money but you know it's working so keep doing it hope you got a lot a lot of money JD Davis amis mais isn't played himself into being one of the core guys it is the move in fall it he read it really hit me to me has and with Neil comes back that's exactly what I would do all right and I'm sorry I'm not put robs a call right back in the lineup if he's coming back you can't give me that now you can't I'm sorry you can't do that he's got to be coming off the bench and in all due respect the can always always taking batting practice all minority see him come back because right now the best line up I see for the Mets McNeil comes back you are what I said this is what I want to see I want to see Alonso make millisecond obviously Rosario usually Frasier **** any outfielders Davison laughed look garrison Senate Conforto in right that's the dental because Rommel sketching that's the thing that's it that's the starting lineup yeah panic come off the bench yes can all come off the bench if he comes back yep allow re come off the bench if he comes back and the same thing with him all these guys are all bets plays now that's it that's that's the way I look at it the only got a good that's injured right out of the immediately goes into line up is McNeil that's that's it I did you got to leave this team alone the way they are they get the job done they plan to rific baseball I'm not messing with any of that and Jay Dee Davis has been on believable like I say we all got our men wagon and rightfully so for a horrific Tracy made a you know for refer good no one D. as de as now who can't even get in the game I mean let's be honest he is so and and right and and thank god that that's the case he is so Barry now that he could even picture his game last night and he was only warming up in a ball data deal in the tenth inning there because there was nobody else left and thank god he didn't come into the game that's why I was screaming about that book by panic what do you do when you go to win the game here you know when a game here you're gonna lose because the as is common in so that trade the J. the Davis strait almost and all knows how good this kid may turn out to be you know maybe will completely trump the Robinson Cano trait maybe well I don't know but he's been unbelievable eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six what we going here about Tom in the Bronx he's on a fan I Tom Hey are you Billy Joe good to you open up the door this is not the first time we is that this is pro back there is the I would like to compare this to the team that is near and dear to my heart and we don't speak enough about a historically the nineteen seventy three that yeah okay that that team was in last place eleven games yeah yeah all his first okay they would only last a last place almost on September first yeah they were eight games on go for a half hour and then they finally finished in first place and then they made it so much sweeter by beating the big bad red machine yeah are you at now so let's leave it at that at the people you love but you have to look for the glass the look of fine became more or the World Series what the game was such a great what they had what are the greatest team up well under way three games so right and it will but you know what they gave us such a ride I'm just hoping that this ticket you know I'm just I'm just taking his wallet but it reminded me of that yeah what's the one thing about this team compared to that team and I will say is that this team is on offensively is better this team is a better all offensive team and that team was I mean you look at somebody you look at the guys on that team I mean obviously they were carried by pitching the pitching staff was great I mean Seaver who won the Cy Young that year you know Jon Matlack Jerry Koosman you know talk guided about it a pan George stone was a huge part of that team this year and really want to reserve a probably win at World Series because all she to pitch game six NHL Seaver out the game seven yoga you want to do that see the talking to pitch in game six and you know they want up losing they came back with Matt lack on two days rest and he got rocked in game seven you know ready at all run all of that we all know what happened there but yeah but that team was carried by pitching staff who's your offensively and a warrant great I mean you look at that team offensively yet don Hahn plane center field you know but Harrelson was certainly not the offense of played a Madras ari always at shortstop Jones is obviously solid rusty stop was solid no doubt Milner at first base when GAC I mean you know them but they were they were great offense a baseball team fills me on second base grow you catch in you know groceries is great defensively about to hit a Wilson Rommel's is so this team is a better or offensive team Bennati but they should only deal with that team did accept that what if that happens I want to take it one step further our when it all eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six let's go to would show in queens he's on a fan Joe how are you hi Joe Joe what's up man how you doing good Joe quick got going to shift gears a little bit if you don't mind I have a quick chat question go yeah yeah big big gap band like itself yeah and my question then regard the levy on the William Penn ended injury it died you have any concerns or hesitation that our star running back now have you seen the field for a good part of a year and a half and haven't taken any in game action before we get rolling on this season no not at all I I really okay I I I I I have no qualms about that whatsoever hi Dick is going to be I think this year I don't know what he's gonna do after you won but I think levy on bell you said all the right things he's doing all the right things I think this guy's got a big chip on his shoulder to prove everybody at this certainly proved a Pittsburgh steel is that they should be kept them and paid him what he wanted so I did you gonna get a big year out a levy on bill this year and I had what I I I can't risk anymore big injuries in pre season I just I can't you know I can't do that I'm what I'm what you ma'am but it's it's been up to the ballots second Brady rain let's try to make the playoffs will make a run to have a good football season thanks for the call job appreciate a Joe let's also attended the the the situation with

what's the deal was even at all do you gonna make be a be ready to go opening day I don't know about that you know I'm a little worried about that but but we'll see I I still feel confident going into the season and we're gonna have ray Lucas we'll talk to him in the in a twelve o'clock hour eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six author down in Miami beach what the hell are you

"We spoke with artists writers, inventors scientists and more about the challenge of turning an abstract idea into something concrete. So you start out with a script and make it as good as you can. That's the filmmaker Don Hahn, who's worked on beauty and the beast and the lion. King many more and then as you actually get into the production, you allow yourself to improvise and make it better. So animations real iterative process, you can visit and revisit and revisit, and sometimes it takes five or six or seven times of putting the movie up on real to look at it, and then have it fall apart and rebuild it, and tear it down and rebuild it before it starts to be anything in the reason is the leap from the written word to visual storytelling. Medium is huge. It's like the leap from a recipe on a page to abusively prepare dinner. The you're actually ingesting. So on a page. How do you describe a perfectly cooked steak with just the right seasoning? You try your best. But once you get that in the frying pan and starts cook that state, it's a whole nother thing. But I think that's why some people shy away from the making parts because you can have perfection on a piece of paper and citizens, a beautifully designed piece of architecture or a fantastic recipe or a great script, and it's going to really go south when you try to execute it, no matter what it is. And it's just experience in and craft. That allows you to maintain some sort of order, and work that written idea into something that's actually visual up on the screen again, as we've been hearing from all sorts of creatives, the execution of an idea requires determination craft experience. Maybe a little luck. It's almost enough to persuade you at least in some cases, that if there were a competition between idea and execution. The idea isn't. Even such a formidable competitor. There's an argument to say a film, like each year Star Wars, or Roger rabbit was a great idea out of the box and anybody could've made that movie, but I kind of subscribed to the other approach, which is, you can take a mediocre idea and put great people on it, and come up with a great movie. Take the Pixar movie.

"Pretty. But, you know, take a winner, the winds sometimes, you know, you need something like that to sort of, you know, get get that street behind you, and you know, and start moving in the right direction. So we'll see what happens kind of signs build take game is. I don't must you just gotta win got to get the momentum going at some point. But you're starting Wilmer font. You going do a bowl of teaching starting by committee, or whatever they call it. So we'll have to see I mean, we'll we'll see what happens and you've used Lugo for two winning. So he's probably not going to be available to that game. So thirty. Unfamiliar on the injured list. So. They should be interesting. We'll see what happens. But I'll tell you this. I mean, look I'm on baseball fan. I love all sports. But you know, what you saw tonight all over baseball is why. You know, I don't you can argue with beat till till you're blue in the face baseball is the greatest sport in the world. Okay. That's it. Yeah. If you look at what the Yankees did her shelhah. Yeah. Lemay, hugh? I mean, great stories there you look at Mike. Fires of all people throwing a no hitter. Justin Turner with three home runs. Kris Bryant the walk off three run Homer for for the Cubbies. I mean, you know, you you want to compare that with the raptors nuggets, you know, blowing competition around the playoffs. I mean talking about snooze IRS now youth, you turn it off pretty easy. But it's with Bryce Harper at the grand slam grand slam so Chico. Skrela wants baseball being to me. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six. Well, you've been disappointed. You did this thing. I wonder what ask you real quick with a hockey player. Maroon Patrick maroon vessel Bugs Bunny? The game room love that love that. I believe that's his second overtime game-winner. If I'm not mistaken in this series. We'll have to double check. That's a great name but looked again game seven overtime. No good night. Good stuff. Keep on another game seven coming up tonight in the NHL. So the fun continue you go. Let's go to Dan in Westport, Dan, you're on the fan. Hey, Tony good to speak with you again. Thanks, man. What's up before? I get to my kind oddball baseball basketball, or and I just want to congratulate you on a lasting laid citing. And I'm wondering if you have George Theodore, Don Hahn stores. Good went on. I liked him. He was when I remember Don Hahn if he was banning like eighth in the lineup and he got his average the two eighty eight and they decided just faking leadoff guy. Then he went like over thirty or seven. I was into that store. George say, let's not forget him. Yeah. He was. And I guess he would be like the Greek freak if he played basketball. There you go. So I got my tale of two cities here is with the Knicks. The nets are archaisms the Mets. I'm worried about who we have Syndergaard is she going to turn it around is Conforto and nemo got a big hit tonight by mandate. I'll look good. No. And with the Knicks. This whole strategy of being the worst team in basketball for whatever five out of the last six years blows up and they get nothing, but the going to happen to them. I asked one of Brian Mahoney. AP covers the NBA. I said everybody's got you know, they're going to get the number one pick. They're going to get the ran fine. Let's look at the flip side what if they get the fifth pick? And he said, well, they'll get somebody good if you, but it ain't gonna be Williamson. It's not going to be a game changer. So it's going to be a good good rookie and the way they pick. Who knows who they're taken that point? I rather have job. And then I don't think Leonard wants to come here. I just I just get that feeling why wants to stay in Toronto by anywhere, but New York with him, Iran. And then I don't know. I I I think he's going to be a week. That's what I'm saying. Cam by even but I mean, I think jobs could identify jaws. Real deal. And Mike always says he's not chairs as a position in the NBA. No fine might be right on the he's a freak athlete. Yeah. But yeah. So I'm worried about the Mets who they have if they're if they're going to ever get it back in the next year. They don't have if they're ever gonna get and keep talking about last things village that was a good one. All right, man. Take with the Knicks. It's you know, it's going to be like all nothing. If this conspiracy theory is that there is any wind up getting waves and Bill find a place from the buzz will be there and everybody, you know, start taking place else couldn't they use for years and years and years. Murray. Cari Irving, just he just seems like. Everybody say these unhappy. I don't know what I mean. What's the u Topi and team that you're going to go to? Even go to the warriors. Where are you going to go? Durant? We'll see what happens with him. Like, I said again, I think so much of the grand means who gets what did he do with the number one pick. Change the rules. This time next to really bad. And now it's got a fourteen percent chance of getting the right? You'll get a number one spot. Maybe just the same. But if they get like the fifth pick, it's it's almost like when. Flip the coin and the buck, Scott, luau cinder and the sons got Neil walk. Just not one became a hall of Famer and the other. I think he's I think he's in a wheelchair. Now, he has some real serious medical issue Sports Illustrated the piece, but one year even at twenty and ten in the NBA, but he just wasn't that guy. Let's go to Ben in queens Benue on the fan. Tonight has been a perfect example of how the the the overnight things on the same wavelength when I heard the criticism of Alonzo earlier my mind went right to lasting millage. You know, 'cause here's a rookie or well first year player, you know, they don't like using the word rookie in baseball. Right. You know, and he's really treating like this game is important take that away. Yeah. Like like, I'm here in them. Criticize him gay criticize all afternoon, and I'm just like wait is if the problem most times, oh the team looks apathetic. Oh does this team care about winning? It's anybody going to try. And now you have a player that goes, you know, what we have to win tonight. We have to win tonight. I wanted to help lead us to win tonight. This young players actually saying, hey, if a rookie like you you can't be bad in one twentieth. Saying that if you got if you hitting and your focal point of the offense and your rookie, and you got to stones to say, what's on your mind and say, what's on your mind and the veterans get upset. It's like we'll do. What are you kid? You wanna win? I'm saying it's an important game. We gotta we gotta win. And they got to win tonight. It was a nice comeback. You know and hell the held on. I keep going right with amendments of momentum. Is the right word. You gotta keep this going because because unfortunately, when you when they flipped they slipped bad matter of fact, you could see it on syndergaards faith when he gave up that two run home run and making four to two that faith was like, oh, God, we ain't getting this back. That's the face he made. 'cause that's how bad the offense has been delayed. You you off the numbers last night. You know? Talk about getting momentum. You had that great complete game gave up shutout. He come back with six runs. I mean six innings in nine hits and five runs four earned. I mean, that's that's what we had in mind. Yeah. Yeah. Quickly on my gangs and other stuff with the Yanks. I tell you during the rain delay. I was like, you know, what just end this. Just just we'll take the l let 'cause 'cause the errors were so bad. Tony. I was like I just don't want anybody to get hurt. And and again, the kids came through again, and that's slide or should I say that lunch by maven at the plate. Count me as the dome full. That was like, no, no, no, don't go home. No. No. No. No. No. Yes. Yeah. You know, the fact he didn't go down right away. And it's a great point that Flaherty put up. He didn't go down. He like he jumped kicked past if he went down he's out 'cause that would have stopped his momentum because of the friction on the damn turf, right? So so, hey, all credit to the angel. And may you I he he is a lot. Why I wanted to get a contacted thing? He's now like four fifty three with one is in scoring position. Yeah. I want him up. He he's a keeper. Now. He is improve scoring position. He's a keeper quickly. Tony. I don't know if you saw any of the highlights, but when Liverpool did Tobar slaughter today. It was that for nothing game. River pool has a three zip advantage. All why Susie? Threes advantage going into that game. All they had to do a score goal messy came close a couple of times. But it seemed like messy was the only one playing and then the Barcelona defence collapsed in the second. He was wanted damnedest thinks that Liverpool's to come back kids when it comes to the Champions League. Jeremy Lin sliding tonight. With the raptors that just met that the seventy Sixers did not show up the play. I think that's under statement. And finally to end it congrats to the blues. Another try at it dead. Don't they're the only team from the expansion of the late sixties early seventies. Not to win a title. So this is the blue kids this year. Tony, thanks for the time. And again group mind, we all think lasted village tonight. I was I was looking up some info on him. I think he's running a baseball academy somewhere down south. He played in planning Ken Japan for a while didn't realize it. But I just I just, you know, talking about, you know, rookies, you know, your place, and I'm like I when when he is going to get to the giants they tied the game up and he went to play right field. And. He was his high five and everybody going down the right field. That's the coolest thing ever saw. Because it's always, you know, baseball was the number one sport in this country and Harrison, I would tell them it's still a great game. But you know, the people are getting away from.
