What To Keep

I was doing some housekeeping and came across these relics of my thirteen years spent at Will Vinton Studios. It again confirmed what a privilege it was to be there and the opportunities that were offered to us as employees. While there I met and unashamedly got the autographs of animator/writer/director Bill Plympton. Another time I had the opportunity to meet writer Buck Henry and again got his autograph. I also had a boat cruise with writer/director/actor Spike Lee and as a previous post called Sentimental Journey records I met other luminaries of the animation world. I feel very blessed to have had these experiences.

At another place I shook hands and talked with William Shatner. But that's another story.

Ah yes, William Shatner. I remember that, I didn't actually shake hands and talk with him like you did, but I recall he wore Birkenstocks with white socks.

Hi Sean! Good memory. Glad you were there to share the experience. Hope we can have more adventures together someday.
