Everybody gets excited at a Disney short film. The visual quality looks great, but the idea certainly isn’t the most original. Very nice film to have at the start of movies though.
Excellent example of good animation that really focuses a lot on nice lines of action, arcs, strong poses animated to camera, strong rhythm and timings and great acting!
Check out CGMeetup’s post on Walt Disney Animation Studios – Technology Papers Videos. They have built quite some proprietary tools to help their artist do the work better 🙂
I find some really cool, like getting the bow-knot cloth simulation to work well:
Good old Disney shorts! There is an amazing part of a life of a person which really stays in my mind in this one.
Gotta love it!
Want to know more about this important man in the history of animation? Watch the documentary called “Secret Lives of Walt Disney”! There are bits about his personal life, his dark side, and of course, his career.
In 1923 Walt disney and his animators already did compositing of live action on drawn backgrounds. Enjoy this short film! Never fails to entertain.
I’ll be sharing my visual vocabulary with everyone, and this shall be the first post! I’ll be sharing Disney’s first film produced with synchronized sound: Steamboat Willie.
Looking at it, it is still amazingly magical. This should be what Disney is all about, unlike today’s identity crisis it is going through. Ub Iwerks is one great animator in the Disney studios back in 1928. I hope Disney can produce works meant for children again, as there are many who wants to be a child again.
