Walt Disney

Walt Disney, founder of Walt Disney Productions which is now one of the most successful and best-known motion-picture companies in the world! His ideas stemmed from experimenting with hand-drawn cel animation and inspired him to start his own animation business after working for different film studios. The reason that Walt Disney was so important in the animation world was because of his innovative ideas and the way he made lots of people from adults to children enjoy animation after having his cartoons shown before films in Kansas City Cinema. Disney was always motivated to keep making each animation better and better, and decided to use technicolour to create the first colour cartoon. By creating a coloured cartoon, this inspired other animators to start producing their work in colour too, which created a new direction for animation as it started to become more and more developed. When Disney came out with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, this also inspired animators globally, such as Japanese animators. Before the release of this full feature-length animation, Japanese animators believes that animation wasn't suited for feature-length film but this then inspired them to start making longer films. Osamu Tezuka, a founding animator for Japanese animation, was greatly inspired by Walt Disney's work and was the first Japanese animator to start to tell meaningful stories with animation, whereas others were still quite simplistic and aimless. Disney had such a large impact on the industry because he was a determined animator that put his heart into it, instead of always looking for the easy answer he created new pathways where other animators would soon follow.
