In recent years, Diana Walczak has begun to focus on directing fully CG-animated projects. Walczak’s directing credits include the short film Little Miss Spider: Lost and Found, (a winner at the 2002 New York International Children’s Film Festival) and two stereoscopic projects: Corkscrew Hill (a 2002 Thea Award-winner) and Santa Lights Up New York (created for The Radio City Christmas Spectacular). Writing about Santa Lights Up New York in the New York Post, Liz Smith said, "This is the best short film of the year!" Walczak’s directing credits also include The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man (for Universal Studios Florida), the film for the Philip Glass/Robert Wilson digital opera Monsters of Grace, and the Clio Award-winning commercial Trophomotion.
Chip Walter is a filmmaker, science journalist and author. He has written three mainstream science books—Space Age for Random House, the companion volume to the primetime PBS series of the same title; I’m Working on That (Simon and Schuster), written with William Shatner; and Thumbs, Toes and Tears—And Other Traits that Make Us Human (Walker Books 2006), his most recent.
