In 1945 American animator Walt Disney and Catalan painter Salvador Dalí began production on a collaborative short, Destino (direct link), featuring music by Mexican songwriter Armando Dominguez performed by Dora Luz.
It would only be completed and released in 2003, 58 years later, by Walt Disney’s grandson, using both traditional and computerised animation.
This is honestly one of the most beautiful and emotional shorts I have seen in my life. Watch it in fullscreen and high definition.
Happy New Year, folks!
My attachment and emotional reaction to visual art and animation is, admittedly, rather diminished in comparison to my reaction to written word and story, literature, built characters, et cetera. But this is an absolutely lovely piece of animation.
