in 1992 I started to work on amblimation’s BALTO. the amblimation studio, steven spielberg’s animation studio, was located in acton, not the nicest area of london. several animated features had been done there before, like FIEVEL GOES WEST and WE’RE BACK. BALTO was spielberg’s next choice and it was the studio’s last film. most of the crew moved late in 1994 to L.A. to become a part of DREAMWORKS. here I have a final modelsheet of balto, based on some test-animation jeff varab, the lead animator on the character, had done. and some color suggestions jeff and I developed even earlier.
