I'm glad and happy to be able to announce that Joey Schinwald and I succeeded in bringing Hans Bacher (IMDb), Annie Award winner and art director of Disney's MULAN and Amblin's BALTO, to Salzburg this October: A Week With Hans Bacher, October 11 - 17, 2010, Campus Urstein, University of Applied Sciences Salzburg, Austria.

"Hans Bacher is a rare person - a top of the tree professional artist, production designer, animator, archivist, and generous teacher."
Richard Williams, Animation Director of 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'

"I have been lucky to have known Hans Bacher and learned from his genius for over 30 years. When it comes to color, composition and design, Hans is in a class by himself."
Andreas Deja, Supervising Animator, Walt Disney Studios
