Something just occurred to me: this blog had its second anniversary four days ago, and I forgot to celebrate... What was there to celebrate, you ask? Well, I was pretty happy to be able to explain the timing to a musical beat using different kinds of original Disney bar sheets
, with click track examples
- and I made a little pc metronome
for just that. Then there are the Who is who's, by way of animation drafts
for 62 short films, four whole features (Pinocchio
, The Three Caballeros
, Alice in Wonderland
and One Hundred and One Dalmatians
) and parts of several others; 14 Action Analysis Classes
and Technical Manuals of the 30's; photos and articles
. I suggest that new visitors browse the archives! In the mean time I go look for more skeletons to drag out of the closet...
Like this one. Yes, that is Les Clark with the little moustache, looking down. And I believe the older gent in the front is Earl Hurd, the legendary inventor of cels, who was at Disney's until he passed away in 1940. Which makes me think that this scene was probably shot in the Hyperion Annex. Note that there are 17 gentlemen and
no fewer than 13
(thirteen!) ladies attending this class!
Of course, I am most proud of my own studio
's endeavors, some of which can be seen on our homepage
. I am a bit surprised nobody commented on our Three Little Pigs commercial for Volkswagen...
