Walt Disney Studios Post Production Behind-the-Scenes

Take a tour of the Walt Disney Studios with Gil Gagnon, VP of Post Production Services.

Earlier this week we brought you Imagineering Sound Design Behind-the-Scenes. Today we present another film by Michael Coleman and SoundWorks Collection entitled Walt Disney Studios Post Production Tour.

Something mentioned in the video really intrigued me. A tunnel under studio building where artwork and other delicate items would be transported. I wish I had photos!

At first glance I thought this guy's sketch might have been the inspiration for the new Walt Disney Animation Studios. But then it was brought to our attention that the pose was the one found on the studios sign way back in the Hyperion days. For some reason I thought the Hyperion sign featured a standing Mickey and not a walking Mickey. Either way, it's good to have this for a current logo.

That Mickey was on the Hyperion Studio's sign. I think it was pretty standard on merchandise and stuff back then as well.

He's waving. People like cartoon characters who wave at them.. It conveys the feeling of "Hey, I'm smiling, I like you, and I acknowledge your existence by raising my arm and hand in the air while smiling at you." PERFECT!!!

You are right, Hoot Gibson! I modified the text a little because you answered the question. I thought for sure the Hyperion one standing and waving, kind of like the famous Ub Mickey (http://bit.ly/eNO3HA) as pointed out by Derek on a Facebook comment.

John Hench was famouse for designing Walt Disney's signature as seen here. I once told him I wanted that job when he retired and showed him how the signatures changed through the ages slightly. He gfgot a good chuckle out of that.
