[YouTube] Found this beaut short via Bloc Party whose fan-made music vid uses its footage for 'Skeleton': "All my thoughts are of ice/All my bones are so tired/It makes a man out of me/makes a man out of me/makes a man out of me/makes a man out of me/You take the fun out of me/You take the fun out of me/You take the fun out of me/You take the fun out of me/And I've been consistent to the fucking dream."Ub Iwerks is ❤
Still feels fresh and new all these years later, using every element of the frame musically and to add to the mood and tone. The shot going through a skeleton's mouth all the way through its body is one of the first moments I can remember being awestruck by animation, achieving fluidity and heightened realism. Maybe this is the best thing Walt Disney ever created?
One of the first memorable moments of the year - viewing this on a home retail Super 8 print at my volunteer work. Even if the print will likely be sent back to the person who donated it, such a small viewing experience is going to be special.
this kind of sorta rules. first of all, my favorite walt disney films are older. second of all, THERE'S A SKELETON DANCE SEQUENCE!. and finally, bones and a cats' tail are being used as instruments. why didn't i think of that first?
