We are overjoyed to announce our next guest. We came out to Chicago to seal the deal. Lock City is proud to announce appearing courtesy of Silver Phoenix Ent. Mr Philo Barnhart.
Philo Barnhart is professional film animator living in Oak Park, IL, known
for his work on feature-length films: The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the
Beast, The Rescuers Down Under, The Secret of NIMH, Happily Ever After,
An American Tail, and special effects for Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
Philo worked many animated TV shows and video games including The
Smurfs, Scooby Doo, Jem and the Holograms, Space Ace, Dragons Lair, and
many more. He worked on consumer products for several years with Disney,
and to this day you can still find his artwork still being used on toys,
books, home electronics/appliances, apparel, and posters. Philo's parent
Dale Barnhart and Phyllis Barnhart were both animators at Disney's
animation studios. Growing up watching the magic of art become
animation, he spends his life continuing the tradition of making stories
come to life through art. Currently Philo is working with Silver Phoenix
Entertainment Inc. His latest comic title is WHISPERS FROM THE VOID
Philo will be hosting a panel at the show on animation and becoming an animator at Disney. An extra special ticket package will be available later this week. Stay tuned for that post.
