Verlorene, if you don't already have a picture to use, I'll put it on my to-do list. Do you have a caption in mind? Or shall we let the picture speak for itself?

Re: Introductions


Hello, everybody! The name's Casey (I'm a girl, in case you didn't know emoticon ) and I live in Tennessee in the Chattanooga area. I'm in my sophomore year in college (graphic design major) and don't have a job right now, but I'm hoping to become an animator for Disney.

Let's see... the first role I saw Robert Newton in was, of course, as Long John Silver in Treasure Island. What made me decide to watch it was first seeing Treasure Planet and falling in love with Brian Muray's portrayal of Silver. Around that time, they had DVD copies of Treasure Island at Walmart, so I figured if I saw Treasure Planet, I've gotta see Treasure Island! Needless to say, Silver is still my favorite Robert Newton character so far (there are still many many movies of his I haven't seen). I love Robert Newton's Silver for the same reason I loved Brian Muray's, because he's just so charming and you just wanna give him a hug... even though he'll probably try to get away from you if you do. emoticon

Aside from that, I liked Newton in The High and the Mighty, Jamaica Inn, and Oliver Twist.

Re: Introductions


Hi, Casey! Great to meet you, and welcome aboard. Yay, another Long John Silver fan. I really enjoyed Treasure Planet too. I'm glad it led you to become a Robert Newton fan!

I think it would so cool to be a Disney animator. But do they still animate the old fashioned way, or is it all computerized now? Do you study computer graphics? I love the classic Disney cartoon films. (And one live-action movie in particular, of course.)

Re: Introductions


Thanks for the welcome!

Yeah, there were a few years where everyone was like, "Oh! They're not doing anymore hand drawn films!" But I think that Meet the Robinsons was the last computer generated film they're doing at least for a long time (not that I didn't love Meet the Robinsons, because I did). Now they are planning to get back to the regular 2D animation, which I am VERY greatful for. 3D animation is what Pixar's for, and I think that Disney should definitely stick to 2D in the future because that's what made them great.

Heh! Well... now that I've rambled on about that... emoticon

Nice to meet you, Casey! emoticon
I wasn't sure that I would like Treasure Planet because of its futuristic twist, but I decided to give it a try and loved it.
I agree with you. Silver is wicked, but so charming that you just want to give him a great big hug. emoticon

Re: Introductions


Yeah, there were a few changes to the story I didn't like, but then at least the title of Treasure Planet gave us some warning not to expect too much faithfulness. And I think a lot of its success was due to the Robert Newton homage (whether or not people realized that's whose version of the character they were seeing/hearing).

Whew, so glad to hear Disney hasn't abandoned 2D animation! So you're aspiring to be a 2D animator then?

Yep! I WAS going to go into Pixar back when I thought Disney wasn't doing 2D animation anymore, but when I heard they were, I decided to go with Disney.

Re: Introductions


Cool. I think if I had it to do over again, I might have become an illustrator. (I didn't get very good--if any--career guidance in school and didn't realize there were so many different kinds of artists and that you could actually make a living at it. I realize now that most of my favorite artists--e.g., Howard Pyle, Arthur Rackham--were illustrators. I love the work of Peter Ellenshaw too--the artist who painted all the mattes for Treasure Island. And my nieces have some of his Pooh paintings on their walls.)
