George Scribner is an artist and filmmaker. He was born and raised in Panama City, Panama and has been with The Walt Disney Company for more than thirty-five years as a Character Animator, Director and Fine Artist. In 1988 he directed Oliver and Company, a full length Animated Feature.
Commissioned by the Autoridad del Canal to record the expansion of the Panama Canal, George spent more than nine years creating large scale oil paintings documenting the construction of this multifaceted engineering marvel. “It was an honor to be a part of this project and my way of giving back to the country where I grew up;” commented George about the creation of these paintings. He completed thirty-five paintings now part of the Panama Canal Authority's permanent collection.
George recently completed a series of original oil paintings documenting the construction of Shanghai Disneyland, a three year commission. He not only painted scenes documenting the construction of this massive entertainment complex but also directed animation projects for a number of new attractions. His new paintings will become part of the historical documentation for this newest addition to the Walt Disney Parks & Resorts.
