“It was an incredible studio of artists,” said Clark Spencer, currently producing Ralph Breaks the Internet. “It was a real family.”
Speaking about the former Disney Feature Animation Florida studio at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (née MGM Studios), Spencer, an Academy Award-winner who worked on films like Bolt, Winnie the Pooh, Wreck-It Ralph, and Zootopia spoke fondly of the creative culture he encountered during his time at Walt Disney World.
“Once you go into that park, and you see families, and you see kids experiencing…these parks, you begin realizing that it’s transformative for them,” he said.
The interviewer, Ryan March of Disney Parks Blog, explained:
Having been a Disney fan long before I was a cast member, visiting with a Disney filmmaker makes me feel like I’m walking among giants. Doing so with a filmmaker I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing for nearly two decades makes me feel like I’m catching up with an old friend.
That was the case during a recent visit to Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California, where I sat down with “Ralph Breaks the Internet” producer Clark Spencer… Our latest visit was our first to take place on camera, allowing me to share his insights like never before. We discussed everything from his unconventional career path to the creative challenges his team tackled in moving Ralph and Vanellope out of Litwak’s video arcade and into the uncharted world of the Internet.
Ryan teased more clips from the interview
This was a fantastic start to the interview series, and I am excited and look forward to the rest of the clips.
