Step Into the Magic of Disney’s Music and Movies with Kate and Laura

Prepare to be enchanted as we dive behind the scenes at The Walt Disney Studios with our latest episode of the Life at Disney Podcast! This week, our hosts bring you the fascinating journeys of two extraordinary talents who play pivotal roles in creating the music and movies we all hold dear.

Joining us is Kate, a Character Technical Director at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Kate’s dream of bringing fantastical worlds to life began in Charles Town, West Virginia, when she was just nine years old. Her passion for animation led her to the Savannah College of Art and Design, where she honed her skills before joining Disney in 2013. Since then, Kate has contributed her magic to a roster of beloved films including “Big Hero 6,” “Zootopia,” “Moana,” and many more. Her talents extend beyond character rigging and technical animation – she’s also held leadership positions as the Technical Animation Supervisor on masterpieces like “Strange World” and “Raya and the Last Dragon.”

Alongside Kate, we have Laura, the Director of Marketing for Disney Music Group. Born in Monterrey, Mexico, Laura’s journey to Disney was paved with academic dedication, earning both a B.A. and a Master’s Degree in Marketing from Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. Joining Disney 15 years ago, Laura has been instrumental in devising music strategies and marketing plans, collaborating closely with Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Studios, and the broader Studio Marketing Strategy team. Thanks to her efforts, the unforgettable soundtracks from your favorite Disney films continue to enchant new generations. Plus, did you know she’s also in charge of the Disney Hits SiriusXM channel?
