Last night at Woodbury University a fundraiser was held for the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive. Producer Don Hahn hosted a panel discussion and multimedia presentation on the art of animation for a packed house of animation professionals and fans. The event was a great success and enough money was raised to be able to purchase two 1.5 terabyte hard drives for the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive. Many thanks to Dori Littell-Herrick and Woodbury University for sponsoring the event, to Don Hahn, Nik Ranieri, Mike Belzer and James Baxter for putting on such an informative show, and to the dedicated crew of volunteers who made sure the whole event ran smoothly.
