About the Book
A stunning tribute to the lifelong friendship and collaboration of Salvador Dali and Walt Disney. In 1945, the two began working on a project together, intended to be a short animated film called Destino. Dali partnered with Disney Legend John Hench to storyboard the film, but production was brought to a halt because of financial difficulties. Over fifty years later, Walt's nephew Roy E. Disney decided to give it new life. The film went on to be nominated for an Academy Award in 2004 . This volume showcases all 150 pieces of art created by Dali and Hench. Also, the sole piece of animation art that was filmed in 1946 is showcased in a series of images explaining how it was digitally cut apart, restored and then reassembled for the 2003 completed film version.
My Take on the Book
I had heard stories of Disney and Dali spending time together but I never really knew anything about the story itself. This book explores the film, Destino though amazing artwork created by Dali and Hench and a wonderful story of how everything was put together. The book also shares the connection and friendship between Dali and Disney which I was not completely aware of before reading this. If you are a Disney or Dali fan you will be sure to love this book!
