nahyunk1-Looking Outwards 05: 3D Graphics

Similar to generating 3D graphics with 2d images through Photoshop and Illustrator, this piece of animation story made by Disney used two dimensional art to create a third dimensional world on screen. First by drawing the characters and the setting, the computer then generates each of the motions to create a set of animated scenes into film. What I admire about this is Disney’s high regard of manual skills and the collaboration of the hand-drawn and the computer. Short films like these from Disney hold significance in that they originate from the artistic skills of the artist more than the artist’s ability to handle machines and softwares. That itself is a quality in this film that I admire and believe a commendable work that sticks to the older practice of creating animation.
