Paul F. Anderson


I said i would keep you posted if i would hear from Paul F. Anderson of Persistence of Vision so here's the reply i got recently:

Thanks for your email. Currently the next issue (#11/12) is scheduled for
June (that is my goal). Yes, it is well over three years delayed, primarily
because the last few years have been a bit rocky here (my dad had emergency
heart surgery, we had a major computer crash, we moved both the POV office
and our home into one larger house; and on a positive note, I was working on
the Walt documentary film for the Disney family and I'm teaching a college
class at BYU on Walt Disney and American Culture). I'm now working on the
main article on Disney and the War and hope to have it finished up in the
next few months. (Should be a dandy issue, too, with an extensive article on
Walt Disney and WWII, an interview with Diane Disney Miller, a pictorial on
unseen Imagineering art--mostly Herb Ryman stuff from the 1960s--and the
normal smaller articles and columns.) Thanks for your understanding and
patience and let me know if I can answer any more questions. Finally, please
be rest assured that as long as I'm alive--I should have another 40 years or
so--there will be a POV (it will, however, always be published on an
irregular basis, unless I can figure out how to not lose so much money on
it). I do understand that this type of relationship isn't for everyone,
which is why I have a satisfaction guarantee-a refund on the remainder of
your subscription at any time for any reason (so if that is something you
want, all you need to do is request it in writing and I'll make arrangements
to get you the money). Fortunately, very few of taken me up on this and are
quite happy to receive it when it is done and consider it worth the wait.
That at least is a goal I strive for, is to make it worth the wait.

Kind Regards,

Paul F Anderson
Thank you for the update--I haven't spoken with Paul in some time now, but that is what he basically told me at the time, that he will always continue to publish the magazine, though at intermittent intervals....definitely intermittent! I do miss the magazine, let's see if he delivers this summer. Mike.


Yes, thanks for the update. :D We all have to be grateful that there are people like Paul that keep the Disney spirit alive with their own time and resources. POV is a labor of love and it shows! If only the Walt Disney Company had management that appreciated its company?s past legacy of quality and customer service that is now something we can only read about in magazines like POV. :'(
