Re: A Conversation with Disney Animator Dave Bossert - MiceChat News Team, 2/9/07
Great interview Tim! It was interesting to hear how the old techniques for animation were done compared to now. One of my favorite parts was this paragraph:
I think in some sense, over the past five or six years, there were a lot of people who thought audiences didnít want to see 2D. They only wanted to see CG. But really, the fact of the matter is that audiences want to see great stories with endearing characters. I donít think it matters what the technique is. Certainly when the CG films started to appear, they were the new kids on the block. It was sort of the shiny new car that everyone wanted to go ďooohĒ at. I think now thereís such an enormous amount of computer-generated features that people are going to start to say, ďGreat, now I want to get entertained again. Not just by looking at some eye candy, but I want good stories. I want endearing characters.Ē Thatís what ultimately is going to make any film a classic.
With all the "what's better" discussions, I think it just all comes down to this and I'm happy to hear Mr Bossert say this.
