If, like me, you consider the high point of modern Disney movies to be all about Ariel, Beast, and Aladdin, then it turns out you’re a massive fan of Glen Keane. Over the course of 37 years Glen had a hand in 20 productions and now, two years after he left Disney, he’s made an animated short for Google’s Spotlight Series. It’s called Duet, and you should watch it right now.
The artistry and technique in his drawing just blow me away; I get the feeling that, for an animation student, it must be equal parts inspiring and terrifying. For someone like me though, whose classroom drawings only occasionally resemble anything, it’s just a glorious display of a master at his creative peak. Here’s hoping that this is the start of more from him.
