Butch Hartman joins us On The Dean's List.
Hartman is a well respected animator, writer, director, producer, illustrator and voice actor, best known for creating the Emmy-winning animated series The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, and T.U.F.F. Puppy on the Nickelodeon family of networks. We will talk about his body of work as well as the creative and collaborative processes that go into producing a half hour animated television program.
Hartman, along with his wife Julieann, has also founded Hartman House; which travels to developing nations and some of the more poverty stricken areas in the United States, has built homes for families in Guatemala, fed nearly families with Thanksgiving meals in the U.S., and is developing a school in Africa. Hartman uses his talent to draw and autograph pictures of his animated shows for hundreds of children at these events. For more information: http://www.hartmanhouse.org/
Hartman is a native of Southeastern Michigan, and we will ask him to share his memories of growing in the Detroit area and offer his takes on several different subjects.
Interlaced in singer-songwriter Jesse Macht’s catchy melodies are an abundance of stories overflowing with passion, vulnerability, empathy and honesty. Much like legendary songwriters before him such as Tom Petty and Neil Young, and modern day influences like Dan Wilson and Jon Brion, Jesse has proven his aptitude for storytelling. His music has been placed in many television shows and networks, as well as commercials, including The Voice, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Giuliana and Bill, Nickelodeon, Cymbalta and the MTV/E! cable catalogue. He’s also had numerous original songs placed in independent films such as James Franco’s "Good Time Max."
Jesse has followed a path similar to his family of entertainers (his brother is actor Gabriel Macht, currently starring in USA’s "Suits," and father is veteran actor Stephen Macht). He has worked hard to make a musical home for himself (both as a solo artist and with his old band Burn Down the Mission) within L.A.’s well-known songwriter community with regular appearances at the Hotel Café, Room 5 and WitZend. Jesse Macht connects with his audience through reflective, conversational lyrics. While his words are dynamic and unapologetically truthful at times, he leaves room for his audience to contribute to the dialogue by using their own experiences. The new album, expected to come out in the fall of 2014, follows Jesse’s 2012 debut solo release Acts of Providence. With it, he hopes to continue to inspire his audience and encourage them to be vulnerable.
