Prod. 2074 - Peter Pan (IV)
- Seq. 03.0 - Flight to Neverland
This FINAL draft dated 10/2/52.
Off to Neverland, folks!
Animation by Eric Larson, Don Lusk and Harvey Toombs (Peter, Wendy, John, Michael, Tink), Hal King (Peter, Wendy, John, Michael), Norm Ferguson (Nana), Clair Weeks (Tink). Again a pretty clear division of tasks, though we have three animators handling all characters.
Clair Weeks, who was Marc Davis' assistant, is credited for the scenes of Tink where she is larger in the field than in the other scenes. This could actually mean three things: 1) Weeks animated the scenes, 2) Davis planned them and passed the job of actually animating them to Weeks, and 3) Davis animated them, Weeks then assisted and became the contact person on the scenes - for as I wrote earlier, these sheets were created to designate responsibility. The only real way of figuring this out is looking at the scenes themselves - one can make stylistic judgements, of course, but the only proper way is looking at the scene folders and drawings, which may or may not exist and may or may not reside in the A.R.L...
(As always, I welcome comments, even if it's about the first time you saw the film or your meeting one of the animators etc.)
