In his hour-long Archive interview, Peter Ellenshaw (1913-2007) describes his long association with the Walt Disney Studios where he became a preeminent matte artist. He discusses the craft of the matte artist and how a matte is incorporated into a film. He talks about Disney's foray into television with the Disneyland series, and mentions his work on such segments of the show as Davy Crockett. B-roll consists of Ellenshaw voicing-over descriptions of mattes done for various projects, as well as a few photos from his Disney years. In a thirty-minute interview conducted with his son, Harrison Ellenshaw, Harrison talks about his father as well as the work that he has done as a special effects artist in his own right, which includes the feature film "Star Wars." Karen Herman conducted the interview on September 11, 2003 in Santa Barbara, California.
