When production began on Alice in Wonderland (1951) in 1946, Walt instantly knew he needed to capture the eccentric lunacy of Wonderland and its residents. He quickly enlisted one of his Nine Old Men, Ward Kimball, for the project. With Ward’s ability to effortlessly make the unreal real, he animated a range of quirky characters, whose bizarre mannerisms added to their unique personalities. Join us in this hands-on workshop where you will learn animation techniques and how to break the rules of logic to create a surreal piece.
This program is presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men: Masters of Animation.
