Prod. 2179 - Jungle Book (III)
- Seq. 003 - Snake
Animated by Milt Kahl (Bagheera, Mowgli and Kaa), Frank Thomas (Kaa and Mowgli) and Ollie Johnston (Bagheera and Mowgli).
A lot of wonderful business showing off hand-drawn animation at its finest by some of its greatest masters. ..
Interesting to see they indicated the end of reel 1/start of reel 2 point in the draft. I notice this specifically, since the last films I edited (incl. our now-current Albert) were not reel-based, and the whole frame stack was delivered in one bunch to the lab, as were the sound reels. But it turns out that our distributor NEEDS it split into reels, as the Italian dubbing studio insists on it. I hope the lab fixes this, as they split the film into reels anyway for the DCP, because some older systems cannot run long MXF files... (Am I getting to be too technical here?)
