This VR drawing creates some nifty imagery. I wouldn’t mind seeing a music video using this style… or maybe an animation. Hint, hint, Glen.
I actually had the good fortune to interview Glen Keane once when I was working on some bonus features for Beauty and the Beast. The man truly radiates warmth, and that spirit infuses the Disney Renaissance films like Beast and The Little Mermaid that have gone down as modern classics. It is hard to explain, but after meeting some animators and getting a sense for their personalities, you see it come through in their work.
One of the great things about Glen’s generation of animators was their striving to earn the respect for animation that live action films (and other art forms) have taken for granted. They truly believed that one day an animated film could be nominated for Best Picture. And then they made it happen.
And they are still going.
