There’s still so much Tom Oreb work to show, particularly commercial stuff and SLEEPING BEAUTY designs. But I thought it’d only be appropriate to wrap the week up with the classic Ward Kimball short TOOT WHISTLE PLUNK AND BOOM. Below is a storyboard drawing by Tom Oreb and a still from the finished scene. Oreb may have done a more detailed layout/design leading up to the final scene, but one thing that becomes clear from the still is how much of a team effort a film like TOOT WHISTLE was. Kimball’s directorial vision and Oreb’s designs set the tone, but it was Eyvind Earle’s electric color styling and Marc Davis’s incredible animation that truly made this particular scene complete. Great animated films can only happen when the entire crew is on the same page, and there’s no better example of this than TOOT WHISTLE.
