Memory Lane 10 - The SCREENING ROOM - Don Bluth Studios - 1986

Below is a quick video showing where the studio would gather every Tuesday morning to view the weekly screenings of Don Bluth's feature ' An American Tail ' during production 1985 - 86.

The screening room was also used for animation classes and the animators acting classes that were held during the beginning of the production 'The Land Before Time'. It was during the summer + fall, just before the studio moved to Dublin Ireland.

As challenging as the acting classes were { we had to perform in front of Don, John Pomeroy and all our peers, which isn't the easiest thing to do } the moments bring back some good memories that myself and friends still talk about. { As well as some extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing ones ;-)}
The one thing we had was knowing that no matter how tough these lessons were as we looked inward to become better actors and artists, everyone else in the room was going through the same challenge. And those moments do create a bond with your fellow artists.
