We explore the technology behind achieving Dan Steven's remarkable Beast performance, the process of building complex scenes such as "Be Our Guest" and throughout all this, will catch an inside glimpse at how the unique and continued collaboration with key production departments (art, costume, music, choreography) was critical to the overall success of the project.

We felt a huge responsibility to properly celebrate the culture and mythology of the Pacific Islands in an epic tale involving demigods, monsters, vast ocean voyages, beautiful lush islands, and a sweeping musical visit to the village and people of Motunui. Join us as we discuss our partnership with our Pacific Islands consultants, known as our "Oceanic Story Trust," the research and development we pursued, and the tremendous efforts of our team of engineers, artists, and storytellers who brought the world of "Moana" to life. PANELISTS: • Osnat Shurer, Producer, Walt Disney Animation Studios • Kyle Odermatt, VFX Supervisor, Walt Disney Animation Studios • Hank Driskill, SDL-Technical Supervisor, Walt Disney Animation Studios • Dale Mayeda, Effects Animator, Walt Disney Animation Studios • Adolph Lusinsky, SDL-Lighter, Walt Disney Animation Studios Production Sessions
