Gorgeous never-before-published photographs, many of technical equipment and sets, and fascinating personal memories celebrate the half-a-century career of Disney Legend Ub Iwerks, a self-taught animator who became the first to animate Mickey and Minnie Mouse in Steamboat Willie. But he went on to become an exceptional draftsman, prolific innovator, and all-around technical genius. He directly collaborated with Walt to create some of the most loved moments throughout film and theme parks, using animatronics and specialty 360 degree cameras!

Even before the creation of Mickey, Walt established a reputation as a technical leader in Hollywood and frequently relied on the counsel, expertise, ingenuity, and creativity of kindred spirit, lifelong friend, and fellow virtuoso Ub Iwerks. Up till now, Ub and his many technical inventions and techniques have been largely unknown by the general public. His illustrious career consisted of dozens of innovative contributions, large and small, to both animated and live-action motion pictures, as well as the fields of optics, film processes, and special effects.

He was also the major force behind the design of special cameras, projectors, electronics, and audio for theme park projects, and much more.

Here is a one-of-a-kind appreciation of an extraordinary man and an outstanding career, a record of his many inventions and accomplishments, and a tribute from a grateful son to his remarkable father. The amount of actual animation art is minimal; this is much more a chronicle of behind-the-scenes photos as Iwerks created ways to better animate and light theme park rides and scenes, and create higher quality nature films when Disney delved into that area, plus work on World's Fair projects and live action films.
