Prod. 2063 - Cinderella (IV)
  - Seq. 01.2 - Introduction (part 2)

Second part of the introduction. More Cindy by Marc Davis, Les Clark and Eric Larson. Mice by Ward Kimball, cat and mice by Phil Duncan, cat and dog by Norm Ferguson. One scene with Stepmother by Frank Thomas, two times shadow effects by George Rowley.

I really like the cat - and in this case, it isn't Ward Kimball who animated him, Phil Duncan and Fergie did! The entire sequence is wonderfully character-driven, and shows the predicament that Cindy is in - and her way of coping with it.

As always, if you are in doubt how many seconds the footage is, you can use the Calculation fields in the right sidebar! Note that footage needs to be entered in the top right-hand box in a certain format: e.g. '6-08' (6 feet 8 frames) must be entered as '006-08' (without the quotes). Then press next to the fields to see the result in frames. Enter this in the second line on the left to see mm:ss:fr (minutes, seconds and frames. (These functions use JavaScript).

Interesting to find Fergy animating on a Jackson sequence. I often thought of Bruno and Lucifer as a Geronimi sequence. I knew that Fergy worked on Bruno around those scenes, but I didn't expect him doing Lucifer here, he does a good job.

We don't see Ward Kimball handle Lucifer here. Phil Duncan does the first scenes wonderfully. Les Clark does some good Cinderella acting scenes. They are not recognised for their work often and they did very well at it.

It seems that Duncan was another broad animator. Fergy seemed to animate quite an amount in this sequence. On "Alice in Wonderland" he did the littlest animation - while he does a good amount. I wonder if we will see more of Fergy animating. I heard from a Milt Kahl lecture that he did some scenes of the King and the Duke in the table.

Ferguson comes aboard, and his alotment of scenes isn't surprising to me in the least! I knew someone else was augmenting Kimball, and out of everyone else, Ferguson was the only other animator who was at all suitable. Shot 165.1 is quite entertaining.

Tomorrow's forecast calls for less Kimball and Duncan mice, with a slight chance of Reitherman and another animator who I suspect is Cliff Nordberg.
