About the Speaker
When Kaitlyn Yang was nine years old, three events happened that changed her life. She emigrated to the U.S. from China, was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, and discovered the joy of digital art by learning Adobe Photoshop. A graduate of USC Film School, Yang founded her own post-production company, Alpha Studios, in 2013. She has more than 60 visual effects credits to her name, from Robot Chicken to Grey’s Anatomy. She is a Forbes “30 Under 30” recipient for Hollywood/Entertainment, co-chair of the Visual Effects Society, and a member of the Television Academy.
Help Us Continue Our Digital Efforts
Since opening over 10 years ago, we have sought to make the museum a place where our guests could find animation, innovation, and inspiration and immerse themselves in the remarkable life story of Walt Disney—the man who raised animation to an art, tirelessly pursued innovation, and created a distinctly American legacy, transforming the entertainment world.
Over the course of our current closure, we have increased our digital presence to stay true to our mission. Your donations ensure that we can continue opening our museum virtually to the world, and that future generations can continue to be inspired by Walt Disney’s life and legacy.
