Walt Disney Series: How Mickey Mouse Appeared?

In the next article from the series “History and Theory of Animation of the USA”, we will take a closer look at the serial works of Walt Disney. These long-term animation cycles have had a huge impact on the full-length production of the Walt Disney Pictures studio itself, as well as on many other animated films of the world working in studios in the UK, Italy, France, Canada and even Russia.

In 1920-1921, Walt Disney commissioned to take 12 short films – “Newman Laughter”. These are the only cartoons made completely by him, from beginning to end (as an artist, animator and author). These scenes from Kansas life were not particularly successful, but they allowed (materially) Disney to begin implementing his own idea – a series of adaptation of fairy tales. Reliance on a literary source and a narrative beginning will become key for the Disney studio for many years, especially in full-length animation (the first semi-animated film according to the original Continue reading

HOW DISNEY HATED WOMEN

Walt Disney joked that he prefers Mickey Mouse to all women in the world. Animator Ward Kimball, who invented the cricket Jimini from Pinocchio and the cat Lucifer from Cinderella, jokingly declared: “Disney did not believe women and cats.” After several losses at the Oscars, Disney stopped taking his wife Lilian to the ceremony because he was sure that she, like any woman, could jinx him. He forbade his daughters to watch their cartoons, fearing that they would not laugh out loud enough.

The specific attitude towards women was manifested not only at home, but also at the studio: Disney officially forbade the employment of female animators, because he was afraid that at the crucial moment they might become pregnant and quit, putting the entire project at risk. In addition, according to Disney, this specialty required a sense of humor and the ability to draw, and neither the first nor the second is characteristic of women. Before the war, the only place in the studio where women were received was the technical department, whose employees transferred the drawings to film. But with the entry of the United States into World War II and the beginning of mobilization, the number of employees fell sharply, and Disney had to hire Continue reading

HOW DISC HAS PERFORMED A REVOLUTION IN CINEMA AND COMMUNICATED EMPLOYEES BEFORE THE STRIKE

Walt Disney considered himself a genius and a visionary. Studio staff considered him a tyrant. And, no matter how hard Disney tried to present his studio as a happy family, it was clear that the family had problems: on the one hand, he really wanted the staff to call him Walt at home, on the other, when it turned out that many of them can’t get used to the treatment by name, he simply began to threaten dismissal for the word “boss”. At first, all this seemed somewhat charming eccentricity, but while working on the first full-length film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, totalitarian manners developed into banal exploitation.

The idea of ​​making a full-length cartoon in the mid-1930s seemed wild even to the studio’s directorate: everyone was sure that the audience could not stand the hour and a half of animation. Walt thought differently and forced everyone to get involved in an enterprise that took three years and a record $ 1.5 Continue reading
