Making a Disney Cell

In Preaccess today we continued our studies about Disney Animation. We learned about the way animators used to make movies. Students guessed how many drawings it would take to make a movie. The answer is over 100,000 cells! Wow.

Next we got to work making our own cells on clear acetate. We traced an image of Winnie the Pooh with black marker.

After that we colored the other side in yellow and red for the color of Winnie the Pooh and his shirt.

Everybody did a great job at tracing but the last part was the made us feel like real Disney animators…

Because the drawing was on clear paper, when we held it to the image of Winnie the Pooh’s house we could move it to make it look like he was flying! It was so cool. Great job everyone!
