An intimate journey through the life and career of 80-year-old Floyd Norman, the first African-American animator at Disney Studios. Norman began his Disney career as an ‘inbetweener’ on Sleeping Beauty, eventually rising to develop the story for The Jungle Book. After Walt Disney’s death in 1966, Norman left Disney to found Vignette Films, where he developed the original Fat Albert TV special and produced segments for Sesame Street. Still tirelessly working on projects for Disney and Pixar, Floyd Norman is the “Supermensch” of animation: everywhere you look in animation history, you find Floyd.
