FANTASIA MAQUETTES

In order to aid animators to fully visualize their characters, model sheets weren’t enough; they also had three dimensional sculptures. As you can see  the poses for these figurines always showed great detail, movement and expression. These maquettes, done for Disney’s Fantasia (1940), almost look alive, as if these pictures weren’t of still figures, but little mini characters moving captured while interacting.

Andreas Deja emphasizes  ”Every one of these little sculpts is a masterpiece, representing not only the personality of a character, but the essence of Disney, period!”

TOP 12 MOMENTS OF DISNEY ANIMATION?

The mexican magazine CinePREMIERE listed their 50 top moments in Walt Disney Studios animation history, according to them (according to writer Luis Miguel Cruz). These above are only their top twelve, you can see them all here.

Even though I don’t personally agree with all of his top decisions (or many of them), the fact that the writer and magazine took the time to appreciate Walt Disney’s legacy, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Wreck-it Ralph, and choose those key moment that display amazing craftsmanship in animation, as well as loving and lasting characters and memories is amazing.

Do you agree with these top twelve? What would your choices be?
