Ron Tippe

I worked with Ron on the animated features Space Jam and Everyone's Hero but I got to know him while he was in development at Warner Bros Feature Animation. We mostly discussed music and guitars (he was a Gibson man, I was a Fender). On August 17th a group of Ron's friends gather to celebrate his life. I, with Allison Abbate, put together this tribute.
