New York Film Academy Guest Speakers
ANIMATOR | DIRECTOR | ACTOR
Eric Goldberg is an animator, director, and voice actor who has worked extensively with both Disney and Warner Bros. He provided the voices of iconic characters Tweety Bird, Marvin the Martian, and Michigan J. Frog in 2003’s Looney Tunes: Back in Action. Goldberg also co-directed Pocahontas, which received two Academy Award nominations.
Goldberg spoke with NYFA students at our Los Angeles campus in 2016, praising hand-drawn animation in an increasingly digital world, remarking, “It’s about creating characters people can identify with. It’s a blend of both sensibilities: theatric and artistic.”
