Prod. UM19 - Giantland

Originally called "Mickey and the Giant," the short Giantland was directed by Burt Gillett, released 11/25/1933. Animation by Les Clark, Cy Young, Johnny Cannon, Dick Huemer, Ham Luske (one scene with Dick W[illiams]), Bill Roberts, Fred Moore, Gerry Geronimi, Gilles Armand "Frenchy" de Trémaudan, Ben Sharpsteen, Ugo D'Orsy.

Through the magic of eBay, I was able to get the following modelsheet of the giant, originally the one that Burt Gillett himself had used (see my archives for more on the Burt Gillett "stash").
Giant Model

For those of you following my blog, I am sorry I have had VERY little time to update these past months! I am more busy than ever, directing my stop-motion film, and that takes most all of my time.
I will return here once in a while with more fun things, I promise!

It's good that you are busy. You are missed here though!

This short is one of those that seems to have been forgotten. It's a really nice piece. As a matter of fact I love most of the shorts of that period. The animators all had a spark in their work.

Thanks for the drafts.

Nice draft Hans: Internet Movie Database only credit Dick Huemer for animation in that short - when we see much more animators turn up here like Fred Moore, Les Clark, Ham Luske, Bill Roberts, etc.

Take your time with the stop-motion film you're working on Hans, you never know - if you take your time, the greater success it could get, who knows?? I'll be looking forward to whatever you post next.

This draft has me curious about how they annotated scenes...

The Scene No. designated "1-A"... would that likely have been a shot that has been added to the original sequence after it was originally storyboarded or conceived?

Hope all is going well with your stop motion film!
