Dan McLaughlin’s Family/Family & UCLA/Family Memorial May 28th 4:30
|The UCLA Animation Workshop lost a great leader on March 15, 2016 when Dan McLaughlin passed away. Dan touched a staggering number of lives; his impact on animation, independent filmmaking, and higher education had a ripple effect, spreading through the Southern California community, and across the world.
Please join us Saturday, May 28th at UCLA’s Melnitz Hall in the Bridges Theater where we will show Dan’s films. Family and friends are invited to speak and share their memories of Dan. In an adjacent sound stage, there will be an exhibit of Dan’s art as well as video messages, films and refreshments. The event will start in Bridges Theater at 4:30. The sound stage art exhibit/memorial beer drinking will commence shortly after the films (and speaking).
As many of you may know, Dan McLaughlin painted as well as animated films. Some of his paintings and memorabilia will be on display at the reception on the sound stage, and available via silent auction. Dan’s three children, Loren, Dan, and Maura, have generously donated these to benefit the UCLA Dan McLaughlin Animation Fund (if you’d like to walk away with a piece of McLaughlin history, please bring your checkbook).

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that charitable gifts be made in Dan’s memory to “UCLA Foundation,” and kindly note “Dan McLaughlin Animation Fund” with your gift. Send to: Fred Bush, Exec. Director of Development, UCLA TFT, 102 East Melnitz Hall – Box 951622, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1622
