Following the success of Mickey Mouse’s debut, the studio continued to diversify their techniques and invest in accurately portraying human anatomy in their cartoons. Join us in this workshop as we take a look at the 1934 Silly Symphony The Goddess of Spring and explore how animators pushed the limits of rubber hose animation in their quest for realism. You will then use exaggerated gestures, posture, and “rubbery” limbs to animate your own goddess frolicking through the flowers.
