A day in the life back at WED

December 24, 2008, 12:17 PM · Following our discussion of Epcot's Impressions de France last week, Bob Rogers e-mailed a great photo with a lot of history for Disney buffs:

Bob Rogers and Rick Harper
EPCOT "Impressions de France" co-producers/co-writers Bob Rogers (left) and Rick Harper (right) stand in front of the story board for the film. Rick was also the film's director, director of photography and music researcher/editor. This photo was taken in 1980 at Walt Disney Imagineering (it was WED Enterprises then) shortly before filming began. Today Rick Harper and his wife live in Carmel, California. He retired from filmmaking in the early 1990's, pursuing his interest in oil painting. He can be reached at Bob Rogers is the founder and Chairman of BRC Imagination Arts, headquartered in Burbank, California, Photo courtesy of Marty Sklar.

I've also posted the photo to our Impressions de France page.
