1. Roger Rabbit 2
    “CG Roger development test”
    Eric Guaglione - Artistic Supervisor: Computer Animation, and Animator

    This is a small excerpt from a larger test that was created during the development of a Roger Rabbit Sequel, which has not been made to date. Roy Disney was particularly supportive of investigating new technologies, including animating Roger Rabbit’s character in CG. Building, rigging, and animating an amorphous CG character in 1998 was a monumental task.

    I acted as set supervisor to support Frank Marshall on the plate shoot. Then Eric Goldberg defined the new look and style of Roger, and animated a 2D version. One would think that rotoscoping the 2D animation in CG would work, but in many cases it did not. Every medium requires an approach appropriate for the medium. In the end, the process we discovered opened many doors to new ways of working, which can be seen in many Disney and Pixar films of today.

  2. My Peoples
    “Integration test” :13
    Eric Guaglione - Artistic Supervisor: Computer Animation, and Animator

    Here’s another development test from My Peoples. This example was one of the last tests completed for the project, designed to put 2D and CG characters side by side. Because the folk art characters come to life, the intended effect was for them to “pop” slightly more than the 2D animated characters, but still look like they occupy the same space.

    Incidentally, this wonderful project was shelved when Disney shuttered the Florida Studio.

  3. My Peoples
    “Blues development test” 1:13
    Eric Guaglione - Artistic Supervisor: Computer Animation, and Animator

    My Peoples was a wonderful project. The Director, Barry Cook, wanted to explore a world where folk art characters come to life to save love.

    This is a very early test, to help define how these folk art characters might feel once they came to life. It was during these early stages of development that I got the chance to personally, design, build, animate, light and render an animation. A one-man band of sorts - with a lot of help from my friends!

    Though achieved many years ago, the Hun Charge is still of interest to those who want to see how it was created for Mulan, one of my favorite films I have ever worked on.

  5. Mulan
    “Behind the Scenes: Digital Dim Sum” 4:03
    Eric Guaglione - Artistic Supervisor: Computer Animation, and Animator

    Here is another “Behind the Scenes” installment for Mulan illustrating crowds and a technique called Faux Plane. It explains techniques I learned in VFX production which we then combined with practices used in feature animated film-making for nearly 70 years.
