Let’s Meet Disney.
I’ve been wanting to start something like this a while now.
Let’s meet Disney is tribute posts to all the amazing talented people who changed something in our lives in one way or another.
The point of this is to introduce you to the underrated people who aren’t as known as the characters that we love.
i hope you like my posts.
Pocahontas has one of the deepest Disney stories ever.
i can actually take any line of the script as a deep quote.
”I’ll need those witless peasants to dig up my gold” well maybe not EVERY line, but still.
Yesterday i went to this animation office that i just began training there, me and the manager were talking and he was impressed by my knowledge of animation, he had no idea how obsessed i am with Disney and animation, so i opened my blog on his lap top, and for the first time saw my blog on somebody else’s computer, i was thrilled, the amount of followers, along with the background and posts, i was like ‘shit, this can be my resume’.
I showed him the Disney facts, and for an animation expert they were interesting as f***, and i was pointing at the amount of notes of each fact to point out the popular movies and the type of facts the people usually are interested in, everything was so helpful, it was crazy.
We kept talking about bringing 2D animation to life and keeping the way of it going with my blog is right there, it made me feel proud, proud of everything, proud of my blog, of myself, of you guys for having this love for Disney. it was amazing.
So just wanted to say, i love my blog, and i adore you guys <3
