In 1938, Jules Engel was asked by Walt Disney to work with them on what became the much-loved Disney classic, Fantasia. He was appointed the task of storyboarding the final dance sequences of the Russian sprites and Chinese mushrooms to the music of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite.
After completing work on Fantasia, Jules Engel was asked to work on a sequence in Bambi, where he was able to show his ideas on abstraction.
co-founded the Universal Productions of America studio with a group of animator friends to create and produce Mr Magoo, Madeline and Gerald McBoing Boing. He then went on to launch Format Films producing US television series The Alvin Show and The Lone Ranger, and in 1970 he founded the CalArts Program in Experimental Animation, which to this day is recognised as one of the world's best schools for animation and arts.

Web of Stories began as an archive of life stories told by some of the great scientists of our time. As the number of stories grew, it became obvious that some were on related topics and a web was slowly being created of connected stories. After a while we also invited famous people outside the field of science to tell their life stories.
Web of Stories is also open to the public to record their stories for the world to view and share. The project is built on the belief that we all have wonderful stories to share, and have family and friends whose tales we would like to hear. The great thing about Web of Stories is that anyone can come and talk about virtually anything they like. Just like our famous speakers, it is an account of their experiences as they remember them.
We hope to provide lasting, first-hand accounts of people’s experiences – imagine that in a hundred years’ time your grandchildren or great grandchildren will be able to watch you telling stories about your life today!
