Summary
"Filmmakers from Orson Welles to Federico Fellini would never have created some of their most brilliant masterpieces without the help of a seemingly simple technique called storyboarding. But storyboarding itself was born from another type of masterpiece--the animated film, specifically the animated features of Walt Disney." "In the early 1930s, artists at Walt Disney Studios invented the storyboard when they found that a film's visual and narrative flow could be easily discerned, and hence developed, by simply pinning a series of sketches on corkboard. At Disney, storyboards were, and still are, an essential intermediary stage coming after concept designs, but before actual animation. They are key in helping artists and writers develop characters and themes." "Paper Dreams explores this creative search for memorable stories, and the development of the situations and personalities that makes every Disney animated film a classic. Included are the storyboard developments for the Mickey Mouse and Silly Symphony shorts of the 1930s; the earliest features such as Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, and Fantasia; and current masterworks, such as Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, and Tarzan, among others.
