Prod. 2179 - Jungle Book (IV)
- Seq. 3.1 - Elephant
Animation by Eric Larson (Mowgli and Bagheera), John Lounsbery (elephants), John Ewing (elephants), Hal King (Mowgli and baby elephant), Eric Cleworth (elephants and Bagheera), Bill Keil (Bagheera), Fred Hellmich (elephants).
Some wonderful animation by John Lounsbery, both rough and incredibly precise, broad and yet subtle. But how did Bill Keil get in there? According to Alberto Becattini, Bill Keil was at Hanna-Barbera at the time! Anyone?
If you are wondering why these sequences are so much larger than the earlier ones, the reason really is that these drafts are "double-spaced," so to speak - each scene has two lines on the draft (one line info, one line dialog) and thus only five scenes per page, while earlier most of the drafts used one line per scene, ten scenes per page. Of course we have seen this before, I just thought I'd mention it.
