Wildlife Concept

Something old I've worked on for an animation project that didn't venture any further than the Concept & Development stage.

One of my all time favorites. It never fails to amaze me how such an amazing package can be churned out by only a small handful of top notch artists and can all be summed up within that short frame of time within the intro.
Story : Warren Foster
Animation : Virgil Ross, Gerry Chinoquy & Art Davis
Layouts : Hawley Pratt
B...ackgrounds : Boris Gerelick
Film Editor : Treg Brown
Voice Characterization by the Ever So Talented Mel Blanc
Unmatched and wonderful music by Carl Stalling & Milt Franklyn
Directed by Friz Freleng

I've always been amazed when I read through all the names and talents involved in each production... that they do actually give full credit and acknowledgments to the artists at the beginning stage of the cartoon and wrapping up with an acknowledgment to the director. It brings back to mind Disney's old feature classics who used to do the same for Snow White, Pinocchio etc. So glad that tradition is still carried on up till now and makes me appreciate all the time and effort each talent puts in to making us all happier in life.
