Disney and Dali ➡ Destino

In 1946, surrealist Salvador Dali formed an unlikely friendship with Walt Disney and they spent a short time collaborating on a short film called Destino. Unfortunately, only 18 seconds of Destino were ever shot, but in 1999, Roy Disney reconstructed the entire short using computer rendering and hand-drawn imagery based on the original sketches and storyboards.

I found this from Cole earlier today and I was really speechless while I was watching it. Although Roy Disney did an exceptional job reconstructing the short, I could only imagine how great the film would have been if the original duo had finished making this masterpiece. So much emotion and thought evoke from watching Destino and the essence of Dali’s style is nicely depicted in a Disney manner…Absolutely beautiful. Great find Cole.
