The Future of Story Telling and Animation

Glen Keane, prolific Disney animator and son of Bill Keane creator of the cartoon “Family Circus”, talks about being an artist and how to let yourself be free. He cites that Pablo Picasso once said, “When I was young, I could draw like Raphael, but it took me a lifetime to learn to draw like a child.”

To Glen, these characters, such as Ariel, Aladdin, and the Beast, are like real life characters that he wished could leap off the page. With the advent of new technology like virtual reality, he can draw and interact in 3D, and create them life size. He can literally step into the page. He calls this medium “Sculptural Drawing” and feels that it opens up a wider realm of possibilities for the imagination.

Check out the video, Glen Keane – Step into the Page. And if you’re lucky enough, try to attend the Future of Story Telling Summit in New York City next month.
