Prod. 2006 - Dumbo (VIII)
Directed by Wilfred Jackson, assistant director Jacques [Roberts?], layout Terrell Stapp.
This 4th draft dated 5/1/41.
Elephants by Bill Shull, Milt Neil and Bill Tytla. Timothy Mouse by Woolie Reitherman. Effects by Dan MacManus, Jerome Brown, Art Palmer, Miles Pike and George Rowley.
It is again a bit interesting to see how the animators were credited. Take sc. 38: Bill Shull animated the elephants stampede. He is credited with "S& 3/4" which means 1.75 times Screen Footage, while the effects animator Palmer gets "1/8 S" or 178th of the Screen Footage. A crowd of elephants would not even get twice the Screen Footage. Things like this never seem fair - especially to the animator. (Been there, done that...)
Sometimes, like in sc. 1.1 and sc. 3, adjustments are made after the footage is awarded, like - a held drawing might be held longer. In sc. 1.1, Shull is awarded "3/4" but 3/4 of 12 is 9-0, not 5-0. MacManus is awarded "3/8 S" and 3/8 of 12 ft. is 4-08, not 8-0. In this case it looks like both have been re-evaluated during a sweatbox meeting, as directors could decide these things there, I have noticed from the notes in my possession. Anyway, this seems to be the reason that the actual awarded footage credtis are stated here - because they do not match the calculation that ws set previously.
