It’s an old fashioned practice, but leave it to Disney to make it new again. Showing a cartoon or a short before the feature film use to be the norm, it is now almost unheard of. However, on November 7, 2014 Disney will present the short “Feast” in front of their new animated picture “Big Hero 6.”
The story of one man's love life is seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.
Director Patrick Osborne, who joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2008 as an animator on “Bolt,” took part in the Studio’s Spark program—which invites artists to explore their own unique ideas in a month-long project that is presented to the Studio team. His experimental short “Pet” was a hit among his fellow Disney artists. Osborne, whose credits Disney’s 2010 feature “Tangled” and 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman,” for which he served as head of animation, was later tapped as co-head of animation for the upcoming feature “Big Hero 6.” But his plans changed when he pitched the idea for “Feast” as part of WDAS’ new shorts program—the project was greenlit with Osborne as director.
It's always exciting to see a new animated Disney flick, stay turned here for a review of both films.
