Disney has released two images from Feast, the upcoming short by Paperman‘s head of animation Patrick Osborne.
The plot: “Feast is the story of one man’s love life is seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.”
If the rumors are true, Feast will use the same stylized CG technique as Paperman. This technique was achieved using a program called Meander. Meander is a genius bit of coding, creating a style of CG animation that resembles hand-drawn, while simultaneously adhering to Disney’s current anti-hand-drawn mandate.
Audience reaction? DELIGHT!
Corporate egos? MASSAGED!
Feast will make its debut at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival (6/10), opening in theaters before Big Hero 6 (11/7).
“Stories that you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely visit.” ~M is for Magic, Neil Gaiman
