This is truly an original piece
7 December 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I don't know how many people will see this comment, but I find this study to be of extra importance. I believe that this study features a particularly familiar piece entitled "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" by Paul Dukas. (It's either this one or study 6, I forget). For those of you who are wondering, it is the same piece that Disney uses in Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 with Mickey Mouse as the apprentice, and it has grown into the piece into which we all know and love. I don't think this is a coincidence: Walt Disney MUST have seen Fischinger's studies and was so intrigued that he used one of the pieces for his Fantasia. So when you are seeing these 70 year old studies, you're seeing the basis for modern animation. In short, if Fischinger and others had not done these early visual pieces, we wouldn't have great masterpieces like Snow White, Pinocchio, Shrek, and Toy Story. It all originates to this.
