Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses and examines Disney's later exploitation of various reality effects, as it drew together two spatial technologies. The first was the multiplane camera, which would bring the studio an Academy Award for Technical Achievement with The Old Man. The second was hybrid animation, the process through which the studio had effectively come into existence with its Alice comedies of 1923–1927. These would allow the studio to produce popular animated films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Bambi (1942), and Fun and Fancy Free (1947).
