I’m always a fan of shorts. It’s a way to feel an emotion without spending 2 hours of more watching a full length film. Shorts have that power to make you feel a certain way in a short period of time.
We had a lovely breakfast and Q&A with the filmmakers of these shorts and I found out some new and interesting Fun Facts for you:
- A Walt Disney Animation Short is usually around 7-8 minutes, but can go up to 10 minutes. Bottom line, is that they want a story told.
- Did you know that anyone can pitch a short idea to John Lasseter?
- In fact, that is a kind of “test” before directing a full length feature.
- In the Disney Short “Get a Horse” The word “red” had to be mixed with different syllables Walt Disney had said because they couldn’t find him saying that word in the archive footage.
- Everyone we chatted with at the panel has been a background character. Such as: Mike Gabriel in Oliver and Company, Dorothy McKim in Beauty and the Beast, Peter Del Vecho in The Princess and the Frog, & Mark Henn in Finding Nemo
