Feast

If you saw Disney's animated superhero flick Big Hero 6 last year, then you've already seen the adorable short film that preceded it from the feature's co-head of animation, Patrick Wilson (no, not the actor). Feast was a lovely, charming tale of a Boston terrier named Winston through whom we see various stages of his owner’s life, specifically at meal time. It's a unique perspective for the short story, and it's greatly affecting and moving. Now Disney has released a quick making of featurette that's just over a minute long as to how the story went from storyboard to pre-visualization to final animation. There's even footage of a real Boston terrier used as reference for the animators. We'd love to see more of the process though. Watch now!

Here's the making-of featurette for Walt Disney Animation's short Feast from Variety:

Big Hero 6 is co-directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) with a script that Jordan Roberts (3,2,1…Frankie Go Boom) co-wrote with the former. Based on the comic book series of the same name, the film marks the first collaboration between Walt Disney Animation Studios and Marvel. The story follows brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. Disney releases Big Hero 6, with Feast, on Blu-Ray & DVD February 24th.

    Yeah I just absolutely loved this short. I think I liked it even more than the movie! And watching it, I couldn't help but think why I didn't think of this, since my dog so takes advantage of having a baby in the house. His favorite spot is right under the high chair at meal time. And as an animator myself, I was surprised that it was 3D. The render sure fooled me into thinking it was traditional.

    This POS was super annoying when I took my daughter to see Big Hero 6! We both thought the film had started then wondered what the hell was going on after 5 mins or so. I paid to see Big Hero 6, not a badly animated dog eat for 15 mins before the movie actually started. What is the point of it anyway? At least BH6 was awesome which made up for it.
    • The point is to showcase wonderful short stories done by animators and filmmakers who have worked on and go on to direct feature animated films like Big Hero 6. It's not badly animated, it's a very specific style of animation. Sorry you didn't like it, but you seem to be the only one. Have you not seen the short films that play before both Disney and Pixar films in theaters before? This is pretty standard practice.

        I don't often go to see Disney/Pixar films in the cinema, so I am unaware this is standard practice. I guess it was just unexpected!

      It's a completely different form of animation than BH6 which is why you feel it was "poorly animated". It's incredibly creative and has a wonderful, fun loving storyline behind it. It was barely over 6 minutes long. Life moves by so quickly, does it really pay to be so negative of something created with so much passion? Not to mention Feast is a top contender for an Oscar tonight...Best Animated Short. I am crossing fingers it wins!!!

    It's Patrick Osborne, not WIlson :) AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE FEAST! I have all of the Disney merch for Feast, including the Winston plush and the limited edition lithographs. I am hoping to one day be able to meet Mr Osborne to have my items photographed! Cypress Farm loves FEAST!!!!
