Making Elephants Fly | Conversations with High Octane Leaders, Dreamers, & Creatives

Making Elephants Fly features conversations with High-Octane Leaders, Dreamers, & Creatives hosted by Terry Weaver. Terry is a speaker, author, and ideapreneur who has invested his life in others to giving them the tools to live life alive; whether through helping others see their dreams become reality, traveling around the world challenging young leaders to change the world, leading teams of people to do more together than they could alone, or hanging out with Mickey Mouse. Over the last 20 years, Terry has spoken to hundreds of thousands of young leaders, worked with entrepreneurs to take their idea from a thought around the fire to a six-figure business, and partnered with creatives to expand their platform from their garage to the stage of the Grammy Awards. On some episodes, we will be sitting down with a New York Times Best-Selling Author, a Disney Imagineer, creative leaders from organizations like Cirque du Soleil, an incredibly successful business leader, or sometimes an entrepreneur just getting started and trying to get their dreams off the ground. Above anything, our greatest desire is to help you discover your passion, unleash your purpose, and start doing the work that you have been created for. Our hope is that it feels like you are pulling up another chair to the table with us and grabbing a cup of coffee and listing in on the conversation.

On this episode of "Making Elephants Fly," Terry sits down with former Disney Animator Tom Bancroft. Tom has over 25 years of experience in the animation industry, much of which was for Walt Disney Feature Animation. During this time there, he was an animator on 4 animated shorts and 8 feature films which include “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Lion King,” “Aladdin”, “Pocahontas”, “Mulan”, and “Brother Bear.”  Bancroft left Disney in 2000 to follow his heart and help Big Idea Productions, creators of the popular “VeggieTales” animated series, create their first feature film, “Jonah: A Veggietales Movie”.  After leaving Disney, Tom literally wrote the book on Character Design. Tom is currently Artist in Residence for the Animation undergraduate program he developed for Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN, where he lives with his family.  He has illustrated over 50 children’s books, contributed to countless comic books for brands like DC Comics, Disney, & Marvel, and is the co-host of the most popular Animation podcast on iTunes (“The Bancroft Brothers Animation Podcast.”) On this episode not only will we hear about Tom's journey but we learn what happens when an industry changes right underneath you. Join Terry as he talks with Tom about creativity, transition, storytelling, and understanding what you're really great at.
