Behind the Scenes: The Golden Age of Disney

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jan 29, 2007 in Animation |

I came across two great blog entries that give a good insight into the golden age of Disney:


Seven “Little People”
Michael Sporn’s blog has a scan of several pages of an internal meeting at Disney in which they’re working on the concepts behind the character designs of the seven dwarfs from Snow White. We’re all so use to looking at this film as a finish product that it’s hard to imagine a point when the concepts for the characters were only half formed. It’s also amazing to me that in an era of typewriters and mimeograph machines that Disney took the time to transcribe this working meeting.


The Ropes at Disney
Jerry Beck at has scanned an entire employee booklet from Disney during the 40s (and there are quite a few World War II references to be found). What I love is that the last page gives you a map of all of the various departments at Disney, so you get to know your way around the studio.
