Making magic: The phenomenal Disney journey Always remember that this whole thing started with a mouse. Walt DisneyFrom mouse to mega global entertainment industry, Disney is the most dazzling parable for the power of imagination. In this first volume of the most comprehensive illustrated Disney publication to date, we chart the empire s masterworks from the Golden Age of Animation, when Walt Disney s trailblazing vision elevated animation into an art form in its own right.With unlimited access to the Disney archives and extensive research, the book s authors have gathered some 1500 images, including concept art, story sketches, backgrounds, and animation drawings as well as many behind-the-scenes photos to trace the origins and evolution of such favorites as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, 101 Dalmatians, and The Jungle Book. Transcripts from Walt s story development meetings, published here for the first time, reveal his imaginative genius in action and immerse the reader at the very heart of Disney s remarkable creative hub.This fascinating archival material covers not only the early Disney classics, but also the experimental short films of the Silly Symphonies and the lesser-known war and propaganda films of the 1940s. Widely neglected musical features such as Make Mine Music and Melody Time are also given extensive coverage. Along the way, we encounter the work of all major Disney illustrators and stylists of the era, including such greats as Ub Iwerks, Albert Hurter, Ferdinand Horvath, Gustaf Tenggren, Kay Nielsen, Carl Barks, Mary Blair, Sylvia Holland, Bianca Marjorie, Tyrus Wong, Ken Anderson, Eyvind Earle, and Walt Peregoy. Special archival finds also bear witness to Disney s collaboration with leading visual artists of the age, Salvador Dali and Thomas Hart Benton."

As the Walt Disney Studio entered its first decade and embarked on some of the most ambitious animated films of the time, Disney hired a group of "concept artists" whose sole mission was to explore ideas and inspire their fellow animators. They Drew as They Pleased showcases four of these early pioneers and features artwork developed by them for the Disney shorts from the 1930s, including many unproduced projects, as well as for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, and some early work for later features such as Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Introducing new biographical material about the artists and including largely unpublished artwork from the depths of the Walt Disney Archives and the Disney Animation Research Library, this ebook offers a window into the most inspiring work created by the best Disney artists during the studio's early golden age. They Drew as They Pleased is the first in what promises to be a revealing and fascinating series of books about Disney's largely unexamined concept artists, with six volumes spanning the decades between the 1930s and 1990s.

Established in October 1923, the Ink & Paint Department set up shop at the first Disney studios on Kingswell Avenue in Los Angeles before moving to the Disney Hyperion Studio, and finally to the Burbank Studios in 1940. At the height of production, the staff was comprised primarily of women, numbering more than 250 artists and technicians. Today, this vital division continues with a small number of talented artists who keep the hand-­made magic alive, even with the advent of 3-D animation. In this glossy volume, featuring never-before-seen photos, artwork, and detailed accounts, the process, techniques, and contributions of the women-and men-who defined the Walt Disney Studio's legendary Ink & Paint Department over the years are carefully explored, preserved, and shared for future generations.

Happy birthday, dear Tramp!Celebrating Chaplin's life and work as his alter-ego turns 100From Alaska to Zimbabwe, the bowler hat, cane, baggy trousers and outsized shoes of the Tramp is still the most recognized silhouette in the world, more than 100 years after Charlie Chaplin first created him. WithThe Charlie Chaplin Archives, TASCHEN presents the ultimate book on the making of Chaplin's films, using the vast resources of the Chaplin archives. Within a year of arriving in Hollywood in 1914, British-born Chaplin, playing the Tramp, had become the slapstick king of America. By the end of his second year on the silver screen, Chaplin's fame had spread worldwide. He was thefirst international film star and, with a million dollar contract, became one of the richest men in the world. With his own studio and his stock company of close collaborators, Chaplin began making his greatest movies:The Kid (1921), The Gold Rush (1925), The Circus (1928),City Lights (1931), Modern Times (1936), and The Great Dictator (1940)—an unassailable collection of work that has enshrined him in thecollective consciousness of world culture. With unrestricted access to his archives, this book offers insight into the process behind the Chaplin genius, from the impromptu spontaneity of his early shorts to the meticulous retakes and reworking of scenes and gags in his classic movies. With900 images, including stills, memos, storyboards and on-set photos, as well as interviews with Chaplin and his closest collaborators, we see how Chaplin turned his caricature of the Tramp into a living character. The Tramp is the ultimate underdog, an everyman trying to survive economic depression, two World Wars, and the Cold War. Whatever crises life threw at him, the Tramp, and Chaplin, shrugged it off, straightened his shoulders, and walked off into a brighter future. This book includes: The entire Chaplin life history in words and pictures 900 images including many previously unseen stills, on-set photos, memos, documents, storyboards, posters, and designs, plus scripts and images for unmade films An oral history, told from the point of view of Chaplin himself, drawing upon his extensive writings, many of which have never been reprinted before. Supplementary interviews with some of his closest collaborators. Material from over 150 books of press clippings in Chaplin's archives, which range from his early days in music halls to his death Chaplin's short films, from Making a Living (1914) to The Pilgrim(1923), as well as all of his feature-length movies, from The Kid (1921) toA Countess from Hong Kong (1967) (In first print editions) a filmstrip from the classic City Lights(1931), cut from a print in Chaplin's archives Documents from the Chaplin Archives Property and Copyright of Roy Export Company Establishment, scanned by Cineteca di Bologna

"Walt Disney and Europe is a fascinating study of the way Europe and European culture influenced Walt Disney and his artists in the making of the Disney animated feature films from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Jungle Book. Unlike many other books on Disney it is not based on secondary sources, and makes no attempt to cover the whole range of the Disney phenomenon, but concentrates on the classic animated feature films that were produced under Walt Disney's personal supervision."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
