Twin Animators

This is an old photo of twins named Marylin and Madilyne
Woods. It was emailed to someone at work to show us. It turns out that they were animators/assistants in the 1940s at Warner Brothers. That is so cool to see other twins working in animation together, especially women in the 1940s! We’re totally fascinated by this, but we can’t find any info about them. Does anyone know about these twins?

November meeting notes:

Medical Animation:
This past WIA meeting we had Katy and Katy talk about the work that they did before hand and show some of their fascinating work that they have done for Medical Animation using both 2D and 3D animation.
The following are the notes that they shared with us:

December Event:
Priscialla Olson, a local animator, will be sharing her animation with us on Friday, December 7th @ 6pm in the screening room 402 on the 4th floor of the 1104 S Wabash building.

January Meeting:
Our next meeting is in January and we will have Patrick Cheng give a presentation on Flash. The date isn't set yet. Check the blog for updates.

Other Events:
Possible field trip to the Virtual Reality Lab and maybe a trip to Calabash.

Goofy Questions:
Kristine has e-mailed the questions to the producer, Tamara Boutcher, of the Goofy short of "How to Hook Up Your Home Theater" We will post the Q&A here.

Flip Books:
I am just going to shoot and post what has been done and if you guys still want to include yours let me know when it will be done and I will do another composite.
