I went out to Montauk for a glorious weekend with my trusted Scribble Junkies mate, Pat Smith, and while drinking alcoholic beverages and we got into a heated argument as to who are the greatest animators. As usual, we totally disagree as to the top 5, so we decided to ask you, our faithful readers, for your opinion. What are the 5 Greatest Animators of All Time? They can be from any country and any era. Studio or Indie, it's up to you.
We want your top 5 list before the end of August so we can print the list, so you, our dear fans, can decide once and for all who are the greatest animators of all time! Get to it! Send your list as soon as possible!
Below is my list of the top 5 greatest animators:
- Winsor McCay
- Milt Kahl
- Preston Blair
- Joanna Quinn
- Hayao Miyazaki
Below is Pat Smith's (Disney heavy) list of the top 5 greatest animators:
1. Glen Keane
2. Bill Tytla
3. Hayao Miyazaki
4. Nick Park
5. Sergio Pablos
