The Drunken Odyssey with John King: A Podcast About the Writing Life

Barry Temple

In this week’s episode, I talk to animator Barry Temple about his extraordinary professional experience in show business. We cover career highlights like The Mouse and His Child, Ralph Bakshi's animated version of The Lord of the Rings, and the arc of Disney animation in the 1980s (from Don Bluth's defection to the renaissance of Disney filmmaking). We discuss the role that perseverance and adaptation play in a successful career, and what it is like to create animation before a theme park audience.
