Born in small town Bainbridge, Georgia, Tom Bronson came to California and became a true Hollywood success story. With ambition, perseverance, and the drive to succeed, Tom was a master of his craft and an iconic fixture at Disney Studios. His joie de vivre was infectious. With that quiet sly undercurrent of the distant south, he was a known practical joker. Tom could light up the room exuding his personable magnetism and simultaneously elevate the people around him. Tom's career knew no bounds and his call sheets reflect every costuming position in every format in existence. From designer to supervisor, costumer to consultant, his filmography is an encyclopedia of the industry. With a monumental work ethic and a skill for creating bonds of cooperation with his crew, he was occasionally a tough boss, but he was also protective and beloved by his teams.
