Disney Animation’s New Animated Short Feast!


Hey All!

As you all know I recently had the amazing opportunity to learn all about the upcoming Disney Film Big Hero 6 from the directors and animators of the film. I also got to met Baymax of course. He’s the loveable inflatable robot everyone is going to go wild over as soon as you see him in action. He’s so adorable.


What’s great about Disney is they not only focus on creating amazing feature length animated films, they also focus on quality short animated films as well. They put these animated shorts before their feature length films and the short that will play before Big Hero 6 is called “Feast“!


The animation studio was indeed themed in Big Hero 6 decor, But some walls and areas were also dedicated to “Feast.”


Such an adorable display I know! “Feast,” a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation for “Paperman”) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.


Director Patrick Osborne, who joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2008 as an animator on “Bolt,” took part in the Studio’s Spark program—which invites artists to explore their own unique ideas in a month-long project that is presented to the Studio team. His experimental short “Pet” was a hit among his fellow Disney artists. Osborne, whose credits Disney’s 2010 feature “Tangled” and 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman,” for which he served as head of animation, was later tapped as co-head of animation for the upcoming feature “Big Hero 6.” But his plans changed when he pitched the idea for “Feast” as part of WDAS’ new shorts program—the project was greenlit with Osborne as director. Producer Kristina Reed produced 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman.”


This short was adorable. We had the opportunity to see it in it’s entirety and it truly makes you want to come home and hug your little fur babies. I could definitely relate to this film as little Winston is essentially a rescue dog who’s owner found him as a puppy on the street. He’s a little dog with a big tummy and a big heart. Our own dogs, in particular Mr. Pink is also a rescue dog with a very big tummy and a big heart. I did get teary eyed watching this short as I love my dogs.


During this spectacular day at Disney Animation, the filmmakers did share how they brought their own dogs of the same bread to the studio to use them as reference models for the short and how much fun they had making the film. They also shared how John Lasseter was always on had to give notes and really loved the idea of the film. It’s the directors (Patrick Osborne) first shot at actually directing an animated film for Disney and I feel like he knocked it out of the park. It’s sweet, the animation is reminiscent of the beautiful short “Paperman”, the story is relatable, and the characters are beyond adorable. You will fall in love with Winston the dog! I know I did. I can’t wait to see “Feast” again. It’s the perfect addition to open for “Big Hero 6.”

It’s going to be two back to back awesome films from Disney Animation when they hit theaters together on Nov. 7, 2014!
