Kelly Asbury and I first met at Vent Haven. I was 14 years old. Having recently gotten into acting and filmmaking, crossing paths with someone as talented and accomplished as him was beyond exciting. To this day I have yet to meet anyone as kind and generous in the film industry as that man. We exchanged countless emails over the years, in which he always gave me wonderful advice and words of encouragement. He made a point to come to one of my performances when I was still actively doing ventriloquism. He even mailed a letter of recommendation to a film school that I was interested in attending. Anyone who knew him in the slightest would agree that to call him a class act would be an understatement. Kelly wrote and directed some lovely animated films – “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”, “Shrek 2”, “Gnomeo & Juliet”, “Smurfs: The Lost Village” and “UglyDolls”. He had lent an artistic hand to a handful of Disney films like “The Little Mermaid”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Toy Story” and “Frozen”. If you’re ever looking to learn about the history of ventriloquism, he also wrote an incredible book called “Dummy Days”. The last time that I had the pleasure of seeing him was in 2011. I’ll miss you, buddy. Rest In Peace.
