Prod. 2003 - Seq. 4.2 - Apimyentogogardi!
This being a musical number, the sequence director is Wilfred "Jaxon" Jackson, assisted by Lou Debney. Layout by Terrell E. Stapp (1893-1979) and Thor Putnam (starting with a multiplane shot).
Pinoke masterfully animated by Frank Thomas and later Ollie Johnston, Jiminy Cricket by Bernie Wolf, Don Towsley and Ward Kimball, Stromboli by Bill Tytla, Dutch Puppet by Jack Campbell, French puppets by Art Babbitt (the "singer") and Eric Larson (the "dancers"), Russian "Bomb Throwers" by Woolie Reithermann.
As today's special treat, here is the entire Sequence.
Frank's animation in this sequence is some of my all-time favorite, as it is an amazing acting job, a complete analysis of this little shy boy, who happens to be a puppet, being "pushed in the pooblic's eye."
Jiminy Cricket is in a supporting role, cause "What does an actor want with a conscience, anyway!"
On a more technical note, see the background column - and the "choice" of using either a 5 Field or a 6 1/2 Field setup. This indicates which camera stand to use, and dictates the size of the paper. It isn't always that close-ups are 5F... You can see details of the setup in the very third posting I have made (and here), see the archive pages, and the paper and field sizes you can see on my separate page that is always linked to on the right...
The weather in Denmark: cold! I braved the snow on my bicycle today - there are still places where it wasn't cleared away, making me wonder where my tax money went...
