PRODUCTION JOURNAL: Midweek Morning Mixer - 12.18.13

December 18 marks the births of legendary directors Jules Dassin (1911) and Steven Spielberg (1946) and the deaths of classic director Robert Bresson (1999) and influential animator Joseph Barbera (2006).  These 4 figures offer so much to choose from for inspiration and knowledge; they are an expert craftsman of filmnoir, a master storyteller of fantasy and wonder, a French auteur of transcendentalist and ascetic filmmaking and an influential animator who captured the zeitgeist of the 60s, 70s and 80s with his wild and funny cartoons.
