How Short Circuit Experiments: Experimental Filmmaking at Walt Disney Animation Studios

SIGGRAPH 2020

Jennifer Newfield, Josh Staub

Short Circuit is an experimental program that began in 2016 where anyone at Walt Disney Animation Studios can pitch an idea and potentially be selected to create an original short film with the support of the studio. This talk will discuss the history and motivation behind the Short Circuit program, highlight how small teams worked efficiently to achieve unique, innovative storytelling and art styles in their shorts, and how lessons from the Short Circuit program have impacted filmmaking at Walt Disney Animation Studios.
