  • Laguna Beach man recalls 42 years as a Disney animator

    http://www.montereyherald.com/mld/mo...g/12167972.htm

    Back then, a kid with talent -- and a penchant for drawing Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck -- could call up Disney pictures, proclaim his desire to be an animator and be invited to the movie studio for a job interview.

    Dave Suding's mother drove him to Burbank. It was 1955. In a month, he'd graduate from high school; in the fall, he'd study art in junior college. He wanted a summer job to fill the gap, and what could be better than Disney? He entered the lot, sketch pad under his arm, brimming with life drawings and faithfully rendered Disney doodlings.

    Disney, for its part, was insatiable for artists. The simple facts: Disney animation required 12 frames for every second of screen time. That's 720 frames a minute. And most every character and critter in the frame required his own army of artists to draw his own 720 frames of blinking eyes, galloping hooves, dancing feet and pixie dust. Another army painted the backgrounds. Another still did the inking.
