Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE 8 Animators top-flight artists but being a bit crazy helps HOLLYWOOD - One of the top animators in the animated cartoon field is veteran Disney artist Milt Kahl, whose character design and expert animation are important contributions to Walt Disney's magical ani-mated-c a r t o o n feature, "The Sword in the Stone." A member of the Disney team for nearly forty years, Kahl refers to the success of Walt Disney and his endeavors as "the doggonedest achievement in cooperation you ever heard of." Looking back on some of the characters he helped create, among them Cinderella, Peter Pan, Alice of "Alice in Wonderland," and many of the dog characters from "Lady and the Tramp" and "One Hundred and One Dalmatians," Kahl, like other members of the large, talented Disney staff, is quick to say, "Nothing would get done around here if it weren't for the fantastic co-operation of every member of the Disney team." In discussing the work of the animator, and there is no one better qualified, Kahl explains: "You might say that animators are artists who make animated drawings. This would be a nutshell definition, but it only tells a small part of the story. You could just about write a book about what the animator does. You can actually say that we are the actors. Or that we are the parents of the stars l'ke Goofy. Mickey, Donald and the rest. We create the characters and their personalities." "Some people who have watched us hammering out the identity of a princess, a squirrel, or a dragon - perfecting every little physical characteristic, every quirk of voice and �ffcavior - have compared the process with writing a good piece of fiction. "Well, it is something like that, but the big difference is that instead of having one creative mind working alone, we have a team of minds. Each artist is a trained expert at giving the best of his own ideas while seeing precisely what his own teammates are visualizing." Pointing to a model sheet composed of many different animation drawings of the character, Merlin, the magician, from "The Sword in the Stone," Kahl continued: "These are the physical specifications for Merlin, the star of the picture, drawn from all angles and including details of his eyes, nose, beard and costume. And here," he pointed to a huge pile of rough pencil drawings, "are some of the hundreds of preliminary sketches we made before we all hudd'ed at a story meeting and decided exactly how the old boy should look. All of this is just part of the detail that goes into 'fixing a character; establishing the way the character moves- gracefully, clumsily, fast, slow -his facial expressions, mannerisms and dozens of problems with the voice." Summing up his work, Kahl concluded: "The animator does the most thorough preliminary work he can, and when he's done that, he gees to work on the actual drawings for the finished film. He must be a top-flight artist, have a well-developed story sense, and the patience and human understanding of a good psychiatrist. And of course we assure each other that being a ful accounting of the legendary little crazy helps." King Arthur's young life and his Filmed in Technicolor, "The adventures with Merlin, the Sword in the Stone" is a mirth- magician. No problem When autograph seekers gathered recently during location shooting on NBC-TV's "Adam-12" at a busy Hollywood intersection, one flustered young lady approached Martin Mitoer and asked, '"May I have your autograph, Mr. McCord?" Without batting an eye, Milner smiled and signed, "Kent Mo-Cord." TOO MANY PAYME NO EXTRA CASH? O Home owners - Borrow from $1,500.00 to $25,000.00 or more.
