In the process of making Pinocchio (1940), animators faced the challenge of trying to illustrate a realistically-moving ocean in the climactic scene with Monstro the whale. They used a variety of art and animation techniques to make the water look natural and their efforts continue to be lauded to this day. In honor of Pinocchio’s 80th anniversary, join us as we discuss the film’s spectacular innovations and teach how to animate water effects using similar techniques.
