QUEST FOR CAMELOT
Director FREDERIK Du CHAU started drawing as a child, turning
his creations into movies using his father's 8millimeter
camera. He attended film school in his native Belgium, where he
studied both liveaction filmmaking and animation. He soon
began working as a director and animator on commercials and television
series. He next worked in animation for Disney France, and then
made a short animated film, The Mystery of the Lamb, that
brought him to United States for the first time when it was selected
for screening in the Los Angeles Animation Celebration.
Du Chau then spent time as an animator for independent animators
Dale and Jane Baer at Baer Animation, where he worked on a number
of Disney projects. He next codirected (with Hoyt Yeatman
of Dreamquest Images) a liveaction, animated and CGI short
for Sony Wonder, and directed the animation on "The Land
Before Time 3," a directtovideo spinoff of the
hit feature film.
Du Chau then spent a stint at Chuck Jones Productions, where he
came to the attention of Warner Bros. just as the studio was forming
its Feature Animation division. Once there, Du Chau worked in
development and was soon attached to direct a story set in the
South Pacific that he'd sold to Warner Bros.. When he was asked
to direct "Quest For Camelot," he put that other project
aside to give his full attention to directing his first theatrical
animated featurelength film.
