Us AGAIN SYNOPSIS:Set in a vibrant city pulsating with rhythm and movement everywhere, an older man and his [energetic/encouraging] wife rekindle their youthful passion for dance, life and each other on one magical day. The years melt away as the joy of dancing propels them across the exciting cityscape of their youth and revives fond memories and ambitions. Director Zach Parrish (head of animation on “Big Hero 6,” and director of the Disney+/Short Circuit film, “Puddles”) taps into his personal story and love of dance, and joins forces with award winning choreographers/dancers Keone and Mari Madrid (“World of Dance” champions), and acclaimed composer Pinar Toprak (“Captain Marvel”), to create this experimental musical fantasy. Brad Simonsen, associate producer on “Big Hero 6,” “Zootopia,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” and “Encanto,” served as producer.

About ZACH PARRISH- (Director)Zach was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and has a strong childhood memory of telling his first grade teacher that he wanted to make cartoons when he grew up. As a high school sophomore, he realized that he could combine his love of animation with his love of computers, after seeing Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.” and having an “emotional response” to a one-eyed green ball named Mike Wazowski. He felt that animation was magic, and wanted to learn how to do that trick that would make audiences laugh and cry. Zach attended the Savannah College of Art and Design and graduated with a BFA in Animation. He landed his first professional gig at the acclaimed visual effects company, Rhythm & Hues, while simultaneously continuing to advance his skill set through the online animation school, Animation Mentor. He went on to work at Sony Pictures Imageworks (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “Alice in Wonderland”), before joining Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2010 as an animator on “Tangled.” This was followed by feature credits on “Wreck-It Ralph” (Supervising Animator), “Big Hero 6” (Head of Animation), “Zootopia” and “Moana” (animator), and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” (Workflow Supervisor and animator). Zach credits his amazing parents and loving family for always supporting his dreams. He is engaged to a fellow artist at Disney and wedding plans are in the offing.
