Prod. 2004 - Fantasia (XX)  - Seq. 4.2 (Beethoven: Second Movement)

Directed by Ham Luske and Ford L. Beebe (Jr.), assisted by Erwin Verity. Layout by Hugh Hennesy. This draft dated 9/11/40.

Character animation by Jack Campbell, Ollie Johnston, Bill Justice, Milt Neil, Bernie Wolf, John Elliotte, Bob Youngquist, Fred Moore, Jim Moore (unless this is a typo), Art Palmer and Amby Paliwoda.

Effects by Harry Hamsel, Don Tobin, Josh Meador, George DeBeeson, Jim Will, Frank Follmer, Miles Pike, Paul Kossoff, Cornett Wood, Jack Gayek, Dan McManus, George Rowley, Art Fitzpatrick, Brad Case and John Reed.

Ward Kimball called this "a candy-box sequence..."

[I decided against a typo for Jim Moore for the simple reason that if it had been Fred Moore all of it, they would simply have written "Moore." Adding the "F" implies that there also is another, "J." Elementary, my dear Watson...]

Art Eliiote? Would that not be John Elliote? He's the one associated with this segment; Art Elliote does 'Dance of the hours'.

Ollie Johnston is just amazing here. Very cute and expressive animation that ins wonderful! I really enjoy his contributions.

It's really hard to deny Fred Moore's obvious association to the sad Melinda scenes.

Of course, John Elliotte.
Being too hasty here. Thanks!

Mmm, interesting casting here; Looking at the draft and I notice some scenes were either cut or some scenes not in it; even the "Sunflower" scenes were taken off after the film was shown, and I'm glad it was taken off!

Never expected Amby Paliwoda to pop up; and Johnston and Moore to the best Centaurette scenes I've seen so far, as well as Johnston animating Cupids.

I think J. Moore is a typo, but this is difficult to ask; because both "Moores" were credited on the film and it's hard to say, and the scenes with the Sad Centaur did say "MOORE" on it; and I'm assuming that it's Fred Moore, but who knows??

Not necessarily, as there are also names like "M. Neil" and "B. Wolf"... were there other animators named Neil and Wolf who they needed to be distinguished from? (Fitzpatrick, though, has no initial before his name!)

There is a typo, though, scene 85 credits an "M. Moore" (probably a typo for J. Moore)

Usually it's quite easy to see that a shot has been re-framed to remove "Sunflower" (or, in scene 41, "Otika"), by the image quality... scene 37, however, seems to have been removed entirely! There doesn't seem to be a corresponding jump in the music, though, so I'm not sure how they did this.
