happy valley

24 03 2009

the following recreated combined pan is from disney’s 1947 FUN AND FANCY FREE, MICKEY AND THE BEANSTALK or THE HAPPY VALLEY. it is one of my favorite shorts, or better – longer shorts. the layouts and the perspective throughout the film is stunning. the background below is a pan combined with a camera truck back from A to B. look at the changing perspectives, the different vanishing points. it is the best example that a felt perspective is usually better than the accurate constructed one. in this example in the ending wide shot no perspective rules are followed, nothing is right – but it looks and feels right.
