Floyd Norman - Walt Disney Golden Age Character Animator Floyd began his career at the Walt Disney Animation Studios many years ago, and have worked on more animated feature films and television shows than he can remember. What's really cool however, are the awesome people Floyd knew and worked with throughout his career at Walt Disney's magic factory.

Floyd worked with Walt's famous "Nine Old Men" as well as the top story men who created the Disney animated classics. It was for Floyd an amazing mentoring opportunity as well as a master class in Disney animation.

Floyd's first animated feature film was Walt's masterpiece, "Sleeping Beauty" which wrapped in 1958 and ushered in the Old Maestro's final decade. In 1966 he was blessed with the opportunity to work on the animated film, "The Jungle Book".

Floyd capped off his animation career in 1999 with the Pixar production of "Monster's Inc." and reluctantly "retired" from animation in the year 2001. However, he has never retired from cartoon making. Since that time Floyd worked on several feature and television productions for various studios and I continue doing so even today.

David ended up graduating from AnimationMentor's "Advanced Studies in Character Animation" course. While studying David started working as an animator at Anera Films in Barcelona, which helped sharpen his animation skills even more.
