The art of animation has gone a long way since the days of the typical paper and pencil sketches meticulously prepared by patient cartoonists. As such, even modern day artists and animators couldn’t help but feel deep respect and admiration to the likes of legendary cartoonist such as Disney’s Fred Moore.
Included as a bonus feature in Walt Disney’s highly anticipated Signature edition of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’, modern day Disney artists Michael Giaimo (Art Director of ‘Frozen’), Lorelay Bove (Disney’s Visual Development Artist), Bill Schwab (2012 Emmy Awardee for Outstanding Individual in Animation), and Mark Henn (known for his works with the ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Lion King’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Frozen’) share their thoughts on how the famed Brothers Grimm character became Disney’s first princess. They also shared pieces of history on how Snow White’s design became influential on the look of later Disney heroines, and Fred Moore’s invaluable contribution to the art of animation. Watch this clip to have a glimpse on what these icons of animations have to say.
