The Animator Letters Project was created in 2010 by Willie Downs. Since the date of inception, 86 professional animators and directors have enthusiastically contributed letters of encouragement to aspiring animators- most of which are handwritten. The letters will be published by Disney Editions around the Spring of 2018, allowing fans to physically hold the letters in book form, enhancing the reading experience.

You will be able to find all the behind the scenes details of the book as they are released right here on the website! Be sure to follow the blog so you never miss an update about the book, or other exciting news about The Animator Letters Project.

100% of the proceeds from the publication of the book were donated to fund The Animator Letters Project Scholarship at CalArts. You can read more about the scholarship here.
