American filmmaker, screenwriter, animator, director and producer.
At age 16, Korty was already producing amateur films and after he completed his education in Liberal Arts at Antioch College, he turned professional. He spent the early part of his career designing and directing animated television commercials, winning an Oscar for "Breaking the Habit" in 1964. His first feature was "Crazy Quilt," 1965, and although over the years, his films became more mainstream, they could never be classified as conformist.
Korty was most successful with his work on made-for-TV movies, with the likes of "Go Ask Alice" and "Ewok Adventure" to his credit. He received an Emmy for his directorial efforts on "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," 1974, and an Emmy and Oscar, in 1978, for his work on "Who Are the Debolts, and Where Did They Get 19 Kids?".
