Well, this proves EVERYTHING is on Youtube- this is some of the first animation I did professionally- A Marsupulami bumper for Disney TV animation. It was freelance I did while I was just starting to animate (during the day) on Beauty and the Beast. Good times! Don't blink!youtu.be/ibo9hKttN3s

Now it can me told- but should it?  After Lion King wrapped and before we started on Pocahontas (1994), we artists of Walt Disney Animation Florida had far too much free time on our hands (for months).  At the same time, our studio head, Max Howard, was leaving to move to the California Disney studio.  This video, made by the artists, was a "what if the artists took over Disney management" storyline.  Its full of us animators, but the Disney Florida management all played along.  I still don't know how we got away with it- but no one was EVER going to see it right?  I'm in there around 13:00 in.  Its long, but if you like Disney animation behind the scenes films, this is the ulitmate!  Enjoy!

Tom Bancroft
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United States
I'm a former Disney supervising animator (Mushu from Mulan and a few others) as well as director at Big Idea Productions (Veggietales) for a couple years. For 7 years I co-owned an illustration/animation development studio, Funnypages Productions just outside of Nashville, TN.

I am now working on my own freelancing and doing other contract work for TV, film, comics children's books, video games and other kids stuff!

I wrote and drew 4 issues of my creator- owned series, "Opposite Forces". Also, I wrote and illustrated the character design instructional book "CREATING CHARACTERS WITH PERSONALITY" through Watson-Guptill publishing. My next book "CHARACTER MENTOR" comes out in 2012 from Focal Press publishers.
