How Walt Disney Cartoons Are Made...
On this day, as we celebrate the premiere of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", I thought you might enjoy this short that RKO released describing how the film was made. This was to theaters goers what the extras we see on a DVD today would be. Remember, this is the birth of animated features, something we take for granted now, but Walt Disney was a blazing pioneer when he developed this. No one thought he would succeed...
They were all wrong of course.
This should be a lesson to everyone. Don't listen to the negative people in life that always tell you no. The ones that always say you can't do it or it can't be done. One thing about life you should remember is that walls aren't made to keep you out... they're there to keep all the others out... those that don't have the will, the drive or the ambition to persevere.
You have to be the one to work on, smarter and diligently seeing what you believe through to the end. So the next time you face a wall in your life, if you truly believe in what you are doing then don't look at it as a wall keeping you from getting to that opportunity you've been working at. Think of it as a wall preventing those that don't have your drive or your focus and keep going.
That's what Walt did... that's what we all should do.
Now that I've said that, I'll get off my soap box and get back to the video.
What would we do without YouTube?
