A short report on the hat building, where I whiled away the middle of Thursday afternoon.
Bolt is moving into higher gears as more of the staff begings getting overtime. As one artist said:
"I caught a screening of the film, mostly story reels now, a few days ago. I hadn't seen it in some time, and they've revamped the story a lot since January. And I really thought it worked well ..."
Princess and the Frog now has production animation going on, as well as experimental animation. The studio formed a study group to analyze the hand-drawn features of the nineties to sort out what elements worked and what didn't, how they can get the most bang for their production buck, etc.
I know next to nothing about the pictures themselves, and wouldn't say much about them if I did.
