He inspired me to do animation and my dad is the senior vice president of Dolby Labs and he has a lot of friends that work at Disney and we visit their headquarters in Burbank, California a lot. Walt is one of my favorite animators because I grew up watching all sorts of disney movies. He is such an important person and almost everybody know who he is.
