    Disney artists reveal letdown throughout film

    The Renaissance and fall of Disney Feature Animation is covered in 39 entertaining and sentimental minutes in Dream on Silly Dreamer, a Florida Film Festival short returning for a regular run at the Downtown Media Arts Center.

    It's about the folks who made the two-dimensional, hand-drawn cartoons at the House that Mickey Built, told in their own words, with a little original animation (of course they couldn't use REAL Disney cartoons) to flesh that out.

    Dan Lund's film lets laid-off animators from Disney's Burbank and Orlando operations talk about "the good times," when there was so much demand for their services, from Disney, Dreamworks and elsewhere, that they could hire agents and raise their prices. And it lets them vent about the betrayal of Disney's long, rich animation tradition, when the studio that Walt Disney founded to make hand-drawn cartoons got out of the traditional classic animation business and laid off hundreds.

    They came to Burbank and Orlando (and Paris and elsewhere) to follow a dream, they tell Lund. They did their jobs. And when management left them alone, to create a masterpiece every three or four years, they did just that.

    See the movie if you haven't heard the unhappy ending to that story.
