I found this by accident while perusing YouTube. I have no idea who did it, but it's associated with Monocle 24 which is an online radio station. Really nice animation, clever use of Flash, great retro design used in a contemporary way. I enjoy this and I'd like to share it with the community. Here's the link to the Forum topic.

All things must pass. Even Glen Keane's time at Walt Disney Studios. After a 38 year run and establishing himself early on as perhaps the industry's premier character animator, Glen is leaving the company. Read all about it here. Also, you can visit a topic in AN's Education Forum which features several videos of Glen animating.

Thank you, good luck and fare thee well Mr. Keane. Whatever you do and wherever you go, you'll continue to inspire greatness.

Here's a real gem. It's the Disney lot in Burbank back when the studio was brand spanking new in 1941. Years prior to the digital production age, the process of sound design was all hands on. Take a look at what they went through to generate sound effects on an animated film seventy one years ago. The Forum topic can be found here.

Tom Hignite's Miracle Studios - Wisconsin
Written by Charles   
Monday, 19 March 2012 22:21

If you've been following AnimationNation over the years, you may recall the activity we had as a result of the late Roy Disney's battle with Michael Eisner from 3002 into 2005 over the control and destiny of the Disney Company, and then finally culminating with the merger between Disney and Pixar. One of the things Roy Disney was fighting for was the preservation of the studio's legacy with the production of traditional hand drawn animation. The movement he started was called SaveDisney. 

During that time in Wisconsin in the upper Midwest of the US, Tom Hignite took Roy's mission to heart and embarked upon the formation of Miracle Studios which has been dedicated towards continuing classic hand drawn animation. His project and lead character, Miracle Mouse, is an offshoot of Tom's primary business as a home builder. Tom's been a supporter of AnimationNation for many years and we appreciate and enjoy his participation with the site, as well as his commitment to bring the miracle of an animated Miracle Mouse to families everywhere.

Here's a promotional video that Tom's produced. To see Tom's comments and a further explanation of what he's up to, follow this link
