The constant motion of fire can make it seem as alive as any other character in animation. Fantasia (1940), which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, memorably uses fire effects to create a foreboding atmosphere in the “Night on Bald Mountain” segment to enhance the menacing demon Chernabog. Join us to learn more about Fantasia and the history of fire effects in animation, and then create your own animation by using varied timing and traditional animation techniques to simulate a flickering fire.
