Brenda Chapman will discuss how important technology is to story in contemporary animation. The discussion will include a brief talk about how Brenda approaches story, and how moving into CG animation enriched her way of looking at story. Brenda will share experiences from her story work on THE LION KING at Disney as well as her experiences directing THE PRINCE OF EGYPT at DreamWorks and BRAVE at Pixar.

Brenda Chapman started her career as a story artist at Walt Disney Feature Animation where she worked on
films such THE LITTLE MERMAID, THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and FANTASIA/2000. Chapman was the story supervisor on THE LION KING, for which she won the Annie Award. Chapman then helped launch DreamWorks Animation Studios, where she directed the 1998 release of THE PRINCE OF EGYPT.  She joined Pixar Animation Studios in September 2003 where she created, wrote and directed the Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe winning BRAVE.
Chapman is currently developing projects for Chapman Lima Productions, Inc., with Kevin Lima.
