Acclaimed film producer Don Hahn offers his own unorthodox, yet highly effective methods for finding creative spirit.

Author Notes

Don Hahn's name is synonymous with some of the most critically acclaimed animated motion pictures of this generation, including The Hunchback of Notre Dame , The Lion King , and Beauty and the Beast , (the first animated film ever nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture (and before the Best Animated Film category was established). He was also the associate producer for Who Framed Roger Rabbit , the groundbreaking 1988 film that pioneered new techniques for combining animation and live-action. His other film credits include Fantasia/2000 and Atlantis . He is currently at work on his next Disney animated film.

Library Journal Review

Seems like anyone who gets paid for writing is qualified to write a "how-to" book encouraging wannabe writers. Here, Hahn, author of Disney's Animation Magic: A Behind the Scenes Look at How an Animated Film Is Made (Hyperion, 1996) and the producer of Disney blockbusters The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, adds his thoughts. Hahn tells us "if I can do it, you can too," and his chatty, anecdotal style is warmly encouraging. But this is motivational reading, not a practical guide for serious students. To develop or reawaken a creative spirit requires both a lifestyle that nurtures the imagination and a certain amount of passion and energy. Creative people are creative because of the interesting, unorthodox ways they lead their lives, not because of the promise of profit or celebrity. Humorous, but not a necessary purchase.√ĄDenise S.
