Famous Animator Booklet: Walt Disney

            by: Kristen Heng 

                                                      The reason I chose Walt Disney as my famous animator is beacause he makes really interesting films and animations. Even though he is gone the Disney company is still thriving and releasing amazing movies and animation. He is like an animation pioneer because he is known throughout the world and his animations are highly popular. Almost everyone knows him and his creations.

Introduction: Why I Chose the Animator and Why He Is Considered an Animation Pioneer

Walt Disney was born on December 15, 1901 and as he grew up he developed an interest in art. In 1918, he tried to enlist in the military and when he was declined because he was underage, he joined the Red Cross and helped as a medical assistant. Walt had started to make characters and his first one was called Oswasld the Lucky Rabbit. Walt married his beloved wife, Lilly or Lillian and shortly after their wedding, Walt made the well-known mouse that we all love, Mickey Mouse in 1928. Then on December 21, 1937, after he released The Old Mill, Disney created Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, which was the first full length animated film. Then over the course of five years, Disney created Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, and Pinnocchio.

                                                              Famous Animator Booklet: Walt Disney 

       

       On the Famous Animator Booklet I chose Walt Disney as my animator. I used three sources of my choosing and gathered the information I thought would be useful in this presentation. 

      The first website I used to gather info was called IMDb and the article was called Walt Disney Biopgraphy. The website publisher was IMDb.com, Inc. and I viewed the website on 9/2/16. The source material I gathered from the website was:Walter Elias Disney was born December 15, 1901.  Walt then started on a series around a new animated character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. I then paraphrased it into:Walt Disney was born on December 15, 1901. When he got older he started to work on an animated character named Oswald the Lucky Rabbit..However, out of all of this informatiom, I couldn't find the author name or the date of publication on the website. The URL for the website is:

  • http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000370/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm

       The next website I looked at is an article called Walt Disney, Biography by JustDisney.com. The information I got off of the website was:Walt had a very early interest in drawing, and art. During the fall of 1918, Disney attempted to enlist for the military service. Three years after Walt and Lilly wed, Walt created a new animated character,Mickey Mouse in 1928. I then paraphrased it into:Walt as a young child has always loved art . During 1918 he attempted to join the military. Three years after he wed his beloved wife, Lillian, he created the well-known mouse we all love, Mickey Mouse. Like the last article I couldn't find the author of the website or the date of publication. I also couldn't find the website publisher. The URLfor the website is:

  1. http://www.justdisney.com/walt_disney/biography/long_bio.html

       The last website I looked at was called About Walt Disney by D23. Like the last one I couldn't find an author or a website publisher. I did however find the date of publication and I looked at the website on 9/8/16. The source material I gathered was:On December 21 of that same year, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full length animated musical feature, premiered in the Carthay Circle Theatre in Los Angeles. During the next five years, Walt completed such other full-length animated classics such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi. WHich I then paraphrased it into:On December 21 of that same year, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full length animated musical feature, premiered in the Carthay Circle Theatre in Los Angeles. During the next five years, Walt completed such other full-length animated classics such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi.
