David A. Bossert (Disney Animator and Associate Producer) Interview
David A. Bossert is the Creative Director for Special Projects at Disney Animation and has worked on over 30 films in his 27 years at Disney. As an effects animator, he's had a hand in several of the studio's all-time biggest hits, including Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King. With the release of Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 on DVD and Blu-ray, Bossert brings us Destinoone of the very special features included with the set. Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray, the seven-minute film is the result of a unique collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali begun in 1946, but put on hold due to studio financial concerns. In 2003, Roy E. Disney worked with a team of modern day animators to complete the film as a tribute to Walt's pioneering artistic vision. Accompanying the highly anticipated short is an all-new feature length documentary entitled “Dali & Disney: A Date With Destino,” which explores the origins of the relationship between Disney and Dali, their collaboration on Destino, and ultimately how the film came to fruition so many years after its inception.
Tribute's Bonnie Laufer spoke with Bossert in San Francisco about the Destino” project and the much-anticipated release of Fantasia on Blu-ray.
