Kristi Turnquist adds some more names to the “What would Wes Anderson do without Portland?” list.
FOXY PORTLAND TALENT
Wes Anderson’s animated feature, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” is getting some of the best reviews of the year. No surprise, then, to see the names of talent with Portland roots showing up on the crew list. Among them: animation director Mark Gustafson, a longtime luminary at Will Vinton Studios; production designer Nelson Lowry, who worked on the Vinton studio-animated series, “The PJs”; and animator Brad Schiff, who worked on “Coraline,” from Laika studio.
To clarify: All three above named Oregon exports worked on the television series “The PJs” , made here in Portland.
