Wolfgang “Woolie” Reitherman, one of Walt Disney’s legendary Nine Old Men, animated many thrilling sequences in Walt Disney’s films. Some of his most dynamic scenes include the prehistoric battle in Fantasia (1940) between the monstrous Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus, as well as Prince Phillip’s encounter with the menacing dragon in Sleeping Beauty (1959). His impressive use of angles, staging, and the character’s stature pulled audiences into these dramatic sequences, conjuring fear, and suspense. Join us for this action-packed workshop where you will learn about scale, size, and proportion to animate an epic scene.
This program is presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men: Masters of Animation.
