Ty Wong Documentary

(Video link) Documentary producer Pamela Tom is working on a documentary about the life and work of Tyrus Wong, who is best known for his atmospheric concept paintings for Disney's Bambi. Mr. Wong is still with us at age 102.

Tom's Kickstarter campaign has just surpassed its goal with about a week to go, but I'm sure she would appreciate additional subscribers.

Inspirational! What a delightful person and artist Wong is.

Thank you for posting this, James. Can you give us a link for Tom's Kickstarter campaign?

Hi, Diana, I've added the link into the post.

Glad you enjoyed it, Dwight. Give my best to Swain and Adrian.

Thanks for introducing us to this project documenting a remarkable artist! It's worth noting that Tom has an ascending list of Kickstarter goals, she has only met the first one, for minimal editing and sound. If more contributions are made, more work can be done, creating a stronger finished movie.

I just want to mention that today a digital download option was added for this kickstarter. Cheaper than the dvd and more practical for the international backers.
