The Way We Were: How Disney Animation Used to Be Made

I came across this video at IFC and was immediately taken in--and taken back, to another time. Most of us know Walt Disney's first (full color/Technicolor) animated feature, Snow White, was beautifully and painstakingly hand drawn and put together, but to see it in front of one's eyes is another thing entirely. I especially like that only pretty girls, kept in a special air-conditioned building, were used to transfer the cartoonists' drawings to celluloid.

Snow White has stood the test of time and I don't care what kind of fancy 3D or motion capture crap they come up with, the old style animation is my favorite. If you're looking to grab the Blu-Ray/High Definition edition, do it before the end of the month because Disney is sending this princess back to the vault April 30th.
