FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT at DISNEY - part 2





FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT at DISNEY - part 1




One of the great things about working at an animation studio, especially Disney are the lectures and people who come in lecture. Even at Disney Australia we had the likes of Glen Keane, Andreas Deja and others from features drop by.


We're all aware of the classes back in the 30s as the studio began to push forward into features, some of the most notable people in their respective fields took the time to visit the Disney studio and give talks to the artist. On February 25, 1939 famed architect, writer and lecturer FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT came to the studio, above is part 1 of the transcript.


Note the person to open the discussion is Pfeiffer, who can only be Walt Pfeiffer, Walt Disney's boyhood friend who worked at the studio for many years.

DISNEY - 1934 part 4



Finally, here is the final part to this in depth article, note the cost estimate for Snow White towards the end. It's also interesting to consider the fact that Walt and Roy were truly devoted to improving the quality of their product and expanding the business, they could very well have kept most of the proceeds (which seem ample) and lived like rich men. Thankfully for us, that's not what they did . . . nor who they were.
