Prod.2001-Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs(XX)

Seq. 13-A "Snow White Making Pies - Witch Enters House"
- Snow White by Bob Stokes, Witch by Norm Ferguson, animals by Eric Larson, Milt Kahl, Ward Kimball (vultures) and Bernard Garbutt.

This very scary sequence has some very interesting cuts: having the vultures land while the Witch says "Just wait till you taste one!" is a strong statement of imminent death. The birds attacking the Witch again is very symbolic - nature tries to help poor innocent Snow White. Bob Stokes' animation is, of course, based on photostats, but he manages to make it look natural and not just boring tracings, while Fergy's witch is deliciously over the top.

I don't see where Larson gets a close-up of the vultures. The only vulture scene in this sequence is scene 19, animated by Kimball. The next shot "birds look at each other" (credited to Eric Larson) does not refer to the vultures but to the "good" birds who attack the witch.

Thanks - as I said, I do not have the film "on me" - I removed the line from my posting!
