Sonnenburg leads the 20 Chinese participants through the complicated process of nurturing an animated TV series from story and character concept, through script development, character design, musical composition, storyboarding, final art, production, post production and scoring, to the finished product.

Disney productions have a gift for delivering a near perfect mix of humor, adventure, personal challenges, and touching emotion that the whole world wants to see. The multi-billion dollar question is how do they do it? How is Disney able to take stories from so many different countries, cultures and continents, and make them accessible to every other culture on earth? That's a skill that the Chinese are keen to learn.

"Chinese animators are impressed by the specialized operation of Disney. We are trying to absorb advanced experiences from them as much as possible in three weeks," said CCTV's Fang.

Yu Shengjun, producer of the Chinese animated series "Little Artist Remy Bear," was equally excited about the opportunity. "It's helpful for the development of Chinese animation to learn advanced experience and technologies from Hollywood. I use the expertise learned from Disney to improve my work, attracting more buyers from other countries."
