Christopher Stelling just made me aware of this project, an animation collaboration between Salvador Dali and Walt Disney. While preproduction started in the 40’s it wasn’t completed until 2003. view the trailer here.
I never completely understood the philosophy that computer animation necessarily supplants
traditional cell animation. To be sure, I don’t want to explode the argument that one is superior to the other. I enjoy both Pixar stuffs and traditional cell animation. It reminds me of the whole Kindle versus books debate, annoyingly out of proportion with dumb arguments on both sides. It’s a shame that Disney gave up on the cell animation.
