Chuck 102Gether at the Alex Theatre — A Terrific Event!

If you were at the Alex Theatre this past Sunday, September 21st for Chuck 102Gether then you’ll know that the following is not hyperbole: IT WAS AN AWESOME AFTERNOON!

Outside the Alex Theatre

First, there’s the Alex Theatre itself…an Art Deco pile on Brand Blvd. in Glendale that is absolutely a knock-out–it’s just a good time being there! When you walk through the forecourt into the cool interior you just know you’re going to be treated to a film spectacle and Chuck 102Gether delivered just that.

Chuck 102Gether was a celebration of collaborative creativity…many family members of the original group of directors and artists who worked at Leon Schlesinger Studios, then Warner Bros. on the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were in attendance: Sybil and Hope Freleng, Ruth Clampett, Linda Jones, Robert McKimson, Jr., and the children of Abe Levitow: Judy, Roberta, and Jon. Heck, even Leon Schlesinger’s relatives were there!

The afternoon got off to a rousing start with a screening of Chuck Jones’s classic, “Duck Amuck”, followed by introductory words from Linda Jones Clough, Chuck Joens’s daughter who introduced the Master of Ceremonies for the afternoon, George Daugherty (a world-class symphony orchestra conductor who regularly guest conducts for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the San Francisco Symphony, and other major ensembles. Creator and producer — with David Ka Lik Wong) of the “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony” and “Bugs Bunny on Broadway” touring concerts that have played to millions of people worldwide. He is also a five-time Emmy nominee, and Emmy Award-winning producer/writer/director/conductor of Chuck Jones’s “Peter and the Wolf.”

George was a fantastic M.C.! Not only because he worked closely with Chuck Jones for so many years, in fact, he said he considered Chuck a second father…his own father having been born on the same day as Chuck, but also because he’s a font of knowledge about the music, arranged and conducted by the amazing Carl Stalling, and shared many insights into the how and the why of the music used in the cartoons, particularly those of Friz Freleng, Chuck Jones, and Bob Clampett. Great stuff!

In between cartoons by Looney Tunes directors Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett, Friz Freleng, and Robert McKimson, Sr. there were panel discussions about the directors and films we'd seen. This one is composed of Leith Adams, former Executive Director Warner Bros. Corporate Archives; Bill Kroyer, director of "Ferngully" and Director of Digital Arts at Chapman University; Tom Sito, now head of the Animation Department at USC's film school; Linda Jones Clough, Emmy Award-winning producer and founder of Linda Jones Enterprises.

The second panel was made up of three of the four "Dover Boys": Chris Bailey, Jeff DeGrandis, and Rob Minkoff along with the indomitable Eric Goldberg. Seen here with a photo of them meeting Chuck Jones for the first time in the early 1980s at CalArts. That's Jeff in the rabbit ears! Their list of credits is pretty impressive too: DeGrandis is the former producer of Nickelodeon's "Dora the Explorer" and is now a producer at DreamWorks; Chris Bailey was the director of the animated feature, "Hop"; Rob Minkoff was the director of "The Lion King", "Stuart Little", and "Mr. Peabody; and Eric Goldberg was the director of "Pocahontas" and the supervising animator of the Genie in "Aladdin".

There was a lot of laughter brought to us by the following cartoons (selected, by the way, by the director’s family members): Chuck Jones’s “Duck Amuck”, “They’re They Go Go”, “One Froggy Evening”; Friz Freleng’s “Birds Anonymous” and “High Diving Hare”; Tex Avery’s “I Love to Singa” and “A Wild Hare”; Bob Clampett’s “The Great Piggy Bank Robbery” and “Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid”; Robert McKimson’s “Hillbilly Hare” and “Walky Talky Hawk”. Thank you all for joining us!

Mulligan’s “Wizard of Oz” Mural Finds Its Forever Home at Burnett Library, Long Beach

Just three months after its creation, the 40′ long by 6′ tall mural commissioned by Warner Bros., Habitat for Humanity, and the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity was installed at its permanent home in the central room of the Burnett Library in Long Beach’s Bixby Knolls area.

Installation proceeds smoothly. Artist James C. Mulligan lifts a panel up to the Chuck Jones Center's Chairman of the Board, Craig Kausen.

Created in September, the mural, titled “There’s No Place Like Home” was a project conceived by Warner Bros. Studios in conjunction with their commitment to assist Habitat for Humanity in the construction of a home for a deserving family in Long Beach’s Bixby Knolls neighborhood. Employees of the Studio donated their time to the construction project as well as working with Mulligan on the mural project–constructing the felt ‘poppies’ that bloom along the bottom of the mural.

World Premiere Party for “The Wizard of Oz”

Chuck Jones Center for Creativity was honored to be a part of the world premiere party for the newly remastered 3D IMAX version of “The Wizard of Oz” which premiered yesterday at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

DSC06649It was o’dark early when we got there to set-up our art display and the art activities. Pictured above from left: Chris Scardino, the Center’s resident teaching artist; Scott Ryder, gallery assistant.

DSC06651The room was bathed in shimmering emerald green and brick yellow, casting an other worldly glow on everyone.

Artist Joseph Yakovetic and his wife, Sammie, assisted with our preparations, cutting ribbons and yarn for the 3D mask making. Along with mask-making there was a table devoted to 3D coloring pages of scenes from Chuck Jones’s animated “Wizard of Oz” from the late 1960s.

O, What a Night! Red Dot Re-cap

Were you there? Wasn't it awesome? Close to 300 people made the scene last night at the 3rd Annual Red Dot Auction, the spring fundraiser for the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity in Costa Mesa, California (couldn't resist the alliterative 'c's!) 

Here's a quick look at the night in pictures…a more detailed account will be posted in the coming days (Chuck Redux needs to rest…)

The Jacobson's take a moment to confab before the crowd arrived. Daughter Brenna helped out by selling raffle tickets throughout the evening and was a contributing artist, mom Rina is a council member and volunteer community ambassador for the Center. Mr. J., well, did as dads and husbands do.

MIke Peraza, second from right, artist and art director extraordinaire for Disney Studios and Warner Bros. kindly donated his talents for a live auction item that included a drawing lesson with him as well as several DVDs of films he's worked on and an original Chuck Jones drawing from the archive. Winners included David Cantor, far left, with his father Neil and Heather Broadnax, third from right, and her mother. Craig Kausen holds the Chuck Jones drawing (Craig is Chuck's grandson.)

As the night wound down, winning bidders and artists got together for Chuck Redux's camera. Here we have contributing artist, Joseph Yakovetic with patrons of the arts, John Tanner (center) and son Nick who were the winning bidders of Joseph's portrait of Chuck Jones. Also, Nick helped out last night by selling raffle tickets and taking photos, thank you Nick!

They used their Red Dot on Jeff's "Chuck Jones as Ralph Phillips" or is it "Ralph Phillips as Chuck Jones"? Either way, it was a fab contribution to the success of the Red Dot Auction! Thank you, Jeff! And thank you to the Yetsko's!

DSC04667
And finally, the truth is out, Craig Kausen is not only an engineer, but also an artist! (Plus, without his unflagging energy and extraordinary positive attitude, none of this would be possible.)

Thank you everyone for making last night such a resounding success. We appreciate you!

Arrival photos and event photos from the Center's professional photographer, Stephen Russo, will be posted later this week. Look for them!

Mike Peraza Explains It All to You

We were absolutely charmed by the paper sculptures created by artist Mike Peraza, but also baffled by how he was able to construct them so beautifully and elegantly. Each of them requires many hours of painstaking work; the detail is phenomenal. 

Celebrating the Chuck Jones Centennial, Peraza, one of the great Disney art directors of the past three decades ("The Little Mermaid", "Aladdin", "Beauty and the Beast"), also put in his time at Warner Bros. working with Chuck Jones on a Bugs Bunny television special. His credits are too numerous to elaborate upon, but suffice it say, he is one of the great treasures of feature, television, and theme park animation. The Chuck Jones Gallery is thrilled and delighted to represent his "Chuck Jones Homage" works* beginning with these wonderful hand-cut and constructed paper sculptures (exclusive to the Chuck Jones Gallery). Take a moment to watch the artist at work:

Here are the finished works:

"Free Bird Seed"

*There are plans afoot to create limited edition works on canvas from original paintings by Mike Peraza in the "Chuck Jones Homage" series. Stay tuned!

The Night Watchman

We're busy curating the exhibition for the Chuck Jones Experience opening in Las Vegas at Circus Circus (truly, it's coming, promise!) One of the exhibitions will feature some marvelous telegrams and a charming letter from Chuck's brother Dick (Richard Jones, who also worked as an in-betweener and animator at Schlesinger Studios and for a while was a part of Chuck's unit; after enlisting in the Service during WWII, went on to make quite a career for himself as a noted photographer and painter,) on the release of this, "The Night Watchman", his first directorial effort (although they called it then 'supervision'.)  Here's the letter from his brother, followed by the cartoon.
