Our filmmaking process begins in Development, where our storytellers begin to craft the narrative, and our artists define the look of the characters and worlds.
Editorial and Sound teams piece together evolving story ideas, guiding production.
In preparation for and throughout production, the Production Training and Development team provides education in filmmaking, art, storytelling, and tools through experiences, classes, lectures, workshops, field trips and screenings.
Breathing life into our characters through the perfect actors.
The Walt Disney Animation Research Library is home to over 65,000,000 assets from Disney Animation's nearly hundred-year history, and is a resource for our artists and filmmakers to explore throughout production.
Technology is at the basis of all things created within our pipeline. Through an empathetic approach, Technologists work to design and build working environments that enable artists to do their best work.
Once development is on track, our artists turn our visual development and concept drawings into three-dimensional characters and environments by creating the models, rigs, and textures that define the look of the world being created.
Great communicators, strategists, and organizers, Production Management is quick to respond to ever-changing schedules.
Stewards of the pipeline, Technical Directors solve problems and tackle new and interesting challenges through a combination of tool building, support, and software development.
The partnership between Art and Technology is behind the best of what we create. Through close working relationships between our artists and technologists, we develop groundbreaking tools and workflows that allow us to explore ways we can optimize the creation process.
Once our characters have been crafted and our environments realized, we begin the process of creating the scenes that will comprise our movie. Shot Production includes the work of many animators and technicians who bring sequences to life in everything from a character’s acting to the fine details in their hair, clothing and the world.
Disney Animation’s Technology teams have created a best-in-class shot development experience. Their focus is not only the ease of data access and collaboration, but also the safety and security of our data. With the artist in mind, technologies are introduced or improved upon to enable higher quality visualization and faster iteration of the final, rendered shot.
Shaping the film through final delivery of picture and sound.
When a production wraps, the art and assets created for our films are organized and archived so the Walt Disney Animation Research Library can make them available to the entire Walt Disney Company for inspiration and reference.
And finally, through the deep collaboration between Production, Technology, and with the support of everyone on the Studio Teams, our compelling characters come together with their imaginative worlds, to tell the universal stories that become part of our films at Walt Disney Animation Studios.
