Over the weekend, a co-worker and I made a road trip down to sunny Florida to pick up some animation desks from the old Disney studio that was closed a couple of years ago. We found a lady who had come into ownership of many discarded pieces and is selling them on ebay.
She still has a couple of desks (animation, layout and background) as well as some of the back and side units. There are some drawing mules and camera stands from the Scene Machine pencil test systems (no tables or software, just the camera column and side lights.
Contact Jennifer Kelly: MADIKATE@aol.com. Prices are reasonable.
And a bit of a bonus for us, when we were unloading the desks from the storage unit, I happen to recognize a familiar marking on one. And sure enough, we had picked up Mark Henn's animation desk. It sure is nice to have some of that history!
(Actually, we delivered the Henn desk to Funny Pages Productions - Rob Corly's & Tom Bancroft's company across town- we were getting mostly background desks here at Big Idea.)
