Thomas R.Reich: Cartoon Explosion
ANIMATION HISTORY Tom has worked with Technicolor to develop a State of the Art method to bring animation back to the brilliance and vibrancies of today’s animation. This has translated Tom Reich’s products into millions of units sold throughout the world in such retailers as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Target to name a few. Tom has researched and brought back heavily damaged and rare lost cartoons back to commercial quality with over 400 film restorations of “Famous Studios”, “Van Buern Studios” and Fleischer Studios” with such creations as Popeye, Superman and Casper. Tom has restored the only completed version of Gulliver’s Travels. Tom’s “Feel the Sound” process which is used in his film restoration was developed by Tom and Dolby. Tom developed a style of Foley Animation sound effects with two time Academy Award Winner, Mike Keeping. This has the organic sound effects to seamlessly mix with the original sound effects that was done in the 1930’s, bringing them into the modern standards.
