Documentary Film Credits

This page lists credits

for all the people

working on the documentary

as they join

our crew.

     Some have more

      spare time than

others,  which is

why some are able

to produce more.

    The Design Teams’ primary role in the production  
 process is to design characters representing the 
 important staff members during the “golden years” 
 of UPA, 1943 through the late 50s.  These new 
 characters will be used to illustrate interesting UPA 
 stories involving UPA artists, sequences that are 
 usually live action dramatizations.  The characters will 
 not necessarily be true caricatures of the various UPA 
 artists, but often just rough approximations, simple 
 and easy to animate characters, in the “UPA Style”.  
 Already you can see by just the first few model sheets 
 that they are very different, just like the various 
 styles of UPA back in those days.

    Nothing is set in stone yet, we have just begun this 
 exciting process, but over the next few months we will 
 be locking down more of the key characters, as we 
 begin to secure our animation team.  And now that the 
 first four scenes are starting to emerge, this process 
 is going to be adding more designers and animators and 
 characters too. Some of the Design Directors, 
 Developers and Animators will take on additional jobs, 
 such as storyboards, layout, backgrounds, and other 
 design and story priorities.  And the Screen Credits 
 will reflect this.Model_Sheets.htmlshapeimage_6_link_0

Here’s the one of Four

Stage Hands, designed by

Rachael Saunders.

These Stage Hands will take care of

all the necessary moving and changing

of the various elements of the documentary scenes.  This first Stage Hand will be the

driver of the United Produce of America

truck, and open up the side of the truck

to reveal Jules Engel’s interview.

Crew Members Highlights
Our Crew is full of very talented people, it’s impossible to choose the best of the group,
but, periodically we will select one, with the flip of a coin, to highlight in this section,
just to give you an idea of the calibre of folks we have on board our production team.

                                                                                                            Today it’s

                                                                                                    China, and moved to New York to study

        Fenway is seen above with four of the characters she created for The Boing Heard Round 
    the World, from top left; Bill Melendez, John Hubley, Joe Siracusa, & Paul Julian.  Fenway
     and Jinkai have a new baby now named, Joy, and if you’ll excuse the pun, it was a joy to 
     meet them both for Fenway’s honorary appearance at the 2014 Asians on Film event in 
     North Hollywood, California, the nearest neighbor to me in Burbank.  And, you may not 
     believe this but we had a delicious Chinese meal, featuring Crispy Duck, which was 
     scrumptious, at none other than a restaurant called ... Joy Feast, really.

of the people that will be credited on our final feature film, and they will evolve 
and grow as the production develops.
