Animart FX

Ed Ladner worked full time for Animart Fx. Productions. He proved himself to be a highly creative imaginative, and talented individual who was also adaptable, coachable, directable and flexible and fun to work with as a creative colleague.

As a copywriter Ed proved himself to be a worthy protégé of both my husband Bob and I. We had a combined experience of 55 years of work as animators with Filmation, Hannah Barbera, and Walt Disney Studios before we established Animart Fx. Productions.

During this time Ed developed and co-wrote award-winning commercials which included two spots for “Santa’s Workshop” recognized as a “Finalist” during the Tulsa International Film Festival. He coordinated animation for an industry film used internationally for Chevron Chemical Division of Chevron Oil Company. He conceived the concept for “Ride Finders,” a commercial for the Transportation Center, which won First Place in the American Advertising Federations’ 5-state competition. Ed also co-wrote a radio campaign for “Rocky Mountain Greyhound Park,” which received Second Place from the Pikes Peak Ad Federation.

Along with Bob and I, Ed was also one of the founding members of the Colorado Springs Media Producers’ Guild. Ed has a great attitude and I strongly recommend him to any creative company.
