The Reason I chose this animator is because he made Who Framed Roger Rabit. my father and I loved that movie. When he came home from work, we would used to just watch that movie over and over. He also animated The Princess and the Cobbler, and The little island. Here are some of his awards. He won 4 Oscars 1 for Prologe, Best Short Film, Who framed Roger Rabit, 1 for Best effecrs, visual effects. And the last Oscar was for A Christmas Carol. He also worked with the people who made Goofy The character and Fantasia the Disney Movie
