Internal News Disney Style

The way we got internal news at Disney in the 90's was through a newsletter called The Twilight Bark, a name taken from the 101 Dalmatians movie.  It was a weekly publication and it was great fun to get it and to read about all the production news and upcoming lectures and events.

It was cancelled while I was still there.  First they change it's name to just Weekly News or something like that and after a while it was cancelled all together.

When I return to Disney for The Princess and the Frog, we had the news digitally on line and it was nice too, but I always missed getting the late paper The Twilight Bark newsletter.

Bellow are some random pages of some issues of the bark so you can have an idea of how we would receive the news of Feature Animation.

O jeito que recebiamos noticias internas na Disney dos anos 90 era atraves do jornalzinho semanal The Twilight Bark.  O nome foi pego do filme 101 Dalmatas.  Era muito legal receber o jornalzinho toda semana e ler sobre as producoes e as palestras e eventos.
O jornalzinho foi cancelado enquanto eu ainda estava la.  Primeiro mudaram o nome e depois de algum tempo cancelaram totalmente.
Quando eu retornei a Disney para trabalhar na Princesa e o Sapo, as noticias internas estavam on line, o que era legal, mas sempre senti falta do jornalzinho de papel.
Abaixo estao algumas paginas de alguns exemplares do Bark pra voces terem uma ideia de como eram dadas as noticias internas na Disney Feature Animation.

  1. Ah, mas o jornal online não tem graça nenhuma.
    Jornal online é só um blog com noticias, não é jornal jornal. Pelo menos eles economizam papel. Mas o bom mesmo é pegar na mão e vê.

    Abaços!

  5. Brings back memories for me too - I edited most of the pages you've posted! :) My first day at Disney was around the time of the the Tarzan wrap party, so I remember grabbing this fantastic art and just playing on each page. Thanks for sharing!
