“Tooning In” With Mark Kirkland

Mark Kirkland says he had all his eggs in one
basket, but he seems to have thrown them into the right one. Mark has directed
more episodes of television’s longest running animated series, The Simpsons, than anyone. The Emmy
winning director began at CalArts studying animation, where he produced the
animated short, Animal Crackers. Mark then went on to work for Hanna
Barbera
Studios as a layout artist. Following, he began his career with
FOX.
Mark occasionally delves into
the live action world. He wrote, directed, and co-produced a short film entitled
A Letter From Home, about an American G.I. who receives a heartfelt
letter from his wife during the Battle of the Bulge.

Mark is being honored at this year’s Burbank
International Film Festival as a Pioneer
in Animation
.
