This segment from the 2003 Louisiana Legends Gala features a profile of honoree William Joyce. Joyce, a native of Shreveport, is a children’s book author, illustrator, and filmmaker. He is also a co-founder of Moonbot Studios. The profile includes interviews with author Coleen Salley and Joyce’s art teacher, Ann Jarrell. Since Joyce could not attend the event, his wife, Elizabeth Joyce, accepts the award on his behalf. Host: Jim Nickel
