And here’s a small segment from the film:
See you there!
I just noticed Matt’s post on the BBC podcast – with Richard Williams, Brian Sibley and Gerald Scarfe discussing their influences of Walt Disney. Cheers Matt! Also, I’ve heard non-uk residents have been getting problems accessing this. Well, you can now download it here.
David Nethery just posted a bunch of pencil/layout tests from The Thief & The Cobbler, Richard Williams epic master piece. Stop by his site to see more, and the ThiefArchive YouTube page for even more.
There’s a great mini-interview with Richard Williams at Spline Doctors:
This is almost identical to the stuff Richard talked about when he came to Vancouver recently. It’s great that it’s all online now. I knew it would end up online eventually, as he mentioned he was on his way south to California, where animator’s are smarter, and carry recorders with them everywhere :P
