Prod. 2074 - Peter Pan (XIV)  - Seq. 12.0 - Underground Home

Directed by Ham Luske, laid out by Al Zinnen, Ken Anderson and Ken O'Connor. Assistant director Rusty Jones, secretary Ruth Wright.
This Revised Final draft dated 9/24/52.

Milt Kahl (Peter, Wendy, Michael), Hal Ambro (Wendy), Bill Justice (Wendy, John, Michael, Lost Boys), Les Clark (Wendy, John, Michael, Pirate), Iwao Takamoto (Wendy), Hal King (Michael), Marvin Woodward , Hugh Fraser, Fred Moore, Julius Svendsen (all Lost Boys), Bob Carlson (Hook, Smee, Pirates)

A plethora of animators and their junior animators/assistants (Takamoto and Svendsen being the unusual names here). It is interesting to see Bill Justice's scenes interspersed as if he was assigned left-overs, or filling out holes in the schedule. Also, again, this draft is dated two months before Fred Moore died.

Just out of curiosity a final draft is just like a timecode for the final picture? What's exactly on the screen is exactly on the draft no changes

Hello and welcome, puppyjonathan!

You can find descriptions of the function of drafts all through my blog, probably on some 20 of the 835 posts. Last one was my November 4th posting where Frank Thomas himself describes it as "the most important document that everyone uses to find out who is responsible for what, and when." As such, as I wrote before, it is a production document aiming to show the persons responsible for the scenes - it is not a historical document.

At times there ARE changes between draft and final image, if there have been edits made after the draft was finalized. It is not always that the draft is revised at such a late date, so sometimes we see scenes on the draft that were cut out of the final picture.

Happy birthday to me! For my birthday this year, I get to find out that Milt Kahl is responsible for Michael's unusual looks in shot 64!

I love Smee and his mother tattoo, in shot 59.1. Thats another scene I enjoyed since I was young.

Tomorrow, I have a feeling we'll see some masterful dance animation by Cliff Nordberg!

John and Michael don't really appear in scene 13 the way the draft says they do.

Nearly the end of the film and finally Bill Justice appears, primarily animating John and Michael. He would have been a regular in Jack Hannah's shorts unit at the time, and I'm curious about how shorts animators were recruited to work on features. Did they consider it an honor? (Did they get paid a higher rate?)

A lot of Bill Justice animation there, and I agree with Zartok - that Milt scene (60.4) of Michael is rather odd. He draws him - perhaps a little too real.

There appears to be a lot of small scenes by Sven - perhaps he was an assistant that was given leftovers.
