                      Introduction:

 

 

 

          The reason why I picked Walt Disney is because he was one of the first people to make aniamtion. Walt and his brother Roy produced short live action films, these short films were animated. Walt also made the colored, animated film. And Walt also made the first animated film to be londer than one-hour.
