Uli's Party at Tangier's in Hollywood

Jamie Bolio recently threw a reunion party for animation Director Uli Meyer at the Tangier Restaurant in Los Feliz, CA. Unfortunately, Uli could not make it from London to Los Angeles, but that did not stop the fun. This was also a reunion for the Pre-Amblimation "Roger Rabbit" crew as well as the "Fievel Goes West" Amblimation crew from London. Most of these folks, about 150 of them have at one time been folded into Dreamworks Animation. After 18 years, when I was an Amblimaion fx animator in London, it was great seeing all those talented folks again! Here's to you Uli, and good luck on your new feature film! And thanks to Jamie Bolio for organizing this event!

Craig Clark, Simon Wells, Phill Neblink, Joe and Steve.
