Setting the Scene with Fraser MacLean

November 18, 2021

For this month’s virtual monthly meetup, Nice Moves is thrilled to host the animation legend Fraser MacLean! Fraser has been working in commercial animation since 1987, and his screen credits include “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, “Space Jam” and Disney’s “Tarzan”. We’ll get to hear about his winding journey into animation, some behind the scenes of his book on animation layout, and learn from his infinite veteran wisdom!

A little more on Fraser:

In addition to being a part of the SAE México online teaching team, Fraser is also the author of “Setting The Scene: The Art & Evolution of Animation Layout” which was described by Total Film Magazine as “….a museum, a film school and an art gallery all in one”. Fraser has taught at a wide range of different universities, colleges and art schools in a number of different countries, including Norway, Scotland, Mexico, Costa Rica, Lebanon and Austria.
