Man alive! "The Walrus and the Carpenter" has to be one of my favorite Disney pieces ever! Thanks so much for letting us see who animated what. Interestingly Kimball only really shows up in the story until the very end in the diner.

Hans, let me thank you again for your generosity in posting these drafts .

I did check out your demo reel and was very impressed by the variety of styles and the high quality of the work. A few years ago Rune had shown me some of your stuff that he had on video , but quite a bit of this is new to me . (I really, really want to see Asterix and the Vikings ... I'm a big Asterix fan and the animation in this one looks so good ) .

I think what I like the most about your studio reel is that you do both hand-drawn and cg animation , not making some arbitrary and artificial either/or distinction between the two forms of animation.

Hi, David - glad you liked our reel. We have always believed that hand-drawn and CG animation should be able to co-exist, and that the success of a picture is dependent mainly on a great story with great characters. Sadly, we still meet financeers who will not put money in films if they aren't CG. But with the great news these days that Disney will return to hand-drawn films (which Andreas also indicated at last years NFFC Legends Luncheon), we have high hopes for an animated future.

As to when Asterix comes to the States - that is up to French M6, for whom we made the film, and who distributes it. We are quite happy with how the film looks - and most important for us, the original artist, Mr. Albert Uderzo, loved it. And that is really what we aimed for.

Thanks so much for sharing these! I just watched that sequence the other day...thsoe oysters certainly have "Freddy"-style faces--and their tripping walk/dance--great stuff! Of course, I love all of that sequence--such great fun animation as Nordberg's et al(I wrote Disney a fan letter when still in school about him, only to find he had just passed away; I was asking who did the "Dinky" bird animation in "Fox and the Hound"--it was Cliff).

Who is the "Fraser" referred to in the draft? Those Walrus close-ups are some of the most expressive pieces of animation I've ever seen in any Disney product.
