Watch: Featurette on Making of the Adorable Disney Short 'Feast'

February 16, 2015


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.

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!!!!
