Help me welcome animation Director and Writer Mike Disa to CTNX 2010. After working for over ten years as an animator/story artist at studios like Disney Feature Animation, Warner Feature, Marvel, Amblin, and Hanna Barbara, Mike struck out to become an independent Director/Writer.
After co-creating the series pilot Creepwood for Warner’s On-line, directing commercials, and developing a feature project for Warner’s Feature, Mike directed and storyboarded the Lilo and Stitch short for Disney called The Origin of Stitch.
The short was well enough received that Mike moved to Disney Toons Studios to develop a series of direct-to-video films based on the classic Snow White film. Mike left the project after a creative disagreement about Dopey speaking and soon after the project was cancelled.
Mike spent a year working on Rob Zombie’s El SuperBeasto before moving on to direct Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs Evil, the CG feature film follow-up to the 2006 hit Hoodwinked for Kanbar Ent/The Weinstein Company.
Since that film wrapped in March of 2009, Mike has directed the feature length animated adaptation of EA’s Dante’s Inferno and is presently directing another R-rated feature length project that will be announced at this year’s Comic Con.
