Introduction by director Gil Kenan.
From the publisher:
Monster House marks the directorial debut of Gil Kenan, who is living every young director's dream, hand-picked by the film's executive producers Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg to create this groundbreaking film. This animated feature from Columbia Pictures and ImageMovers features the innovative, cutting-edge technology of "performance-driven" animation developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks and first introduced in the film The Polar Express.
This came from the library of Burny Mattinson (1935-2023), an animator, director, producer, and story artist for Walt Disney Animation Studios, from 1953 until his death in 2023. Mattinson directed Mickey's Christmas Carol and The Great Mouse Detective. He was named a Disney Legend in 2008 and was the longest serving employee of The Walt Disney Company, with a career that spanned almost 70 years. His extensive library included numerous subjects and especially large collections of books on Disney, animation, and classic comic strips.
