    Quicktime VR of Disney Studio Archive

    Just found this link, thought some of you may enjoy it. Click on the link to the Disney Archive.

    There are many cool things to look for, Dave Smiths office is there, and the various displays of maquettes, books, and memorabilia.

    Thanks.

    There's also a VR there of the Disney Studio's Prop Department...which I believe they recently closed for good.

    In the Archive picture, archivist and author Robert Tieman's office is through the open door nearest you on the right. Dave Smith's office is next door on the other side of the Mickey portraits.

    The statues above the bookshelves on the left are maquettes--the 3D models animators used to assist their drawing. Many of them are from Fantasia and Pinocchio.

    I had the opportunity to visit the Studio and the Archives a couple of months ago. I was able to talk to a number of people who worked there who were very generous with their time and had no problem with me taking pictures. Idiot that I am, however, most of those pictures were lost--long painful story. Anyway, the people there are fantastic. If you ever get the rare chance to visit the Studio (it's not open to the public), do it. You'll treasure the memory, especially if you're stupid enough to lose the pictures.
