Early on in his career, Walt Disney worked with animation that contained no spoken dialogue. Instead, Walt and other early animators used clear imagery and compelling physical performances to tell their stories. In order to ensure audiences understood what was happening, movements and gestures were overemphasized, in the style of pantomime theater performers. See these early examples of animation in gallery 1, and then learn how to exaggerate poses, facial expressions, and movements yourself in order to create an animated piece that tells a clear visual story without dialogue.
