Storyline

On March 25, 2002, more than 200 Disney artists working at the studio's legendary Feature Animation Department in Burbank, were told that their services were no longer needed by the company. It took only one uncomfortable gathering with the president of Feature Animation, now dubbed "The Tom Meeting", to kill 75 years of a beloved animated tradition. A similar series of events soon played out at Disney's other animation studios in Paris, Tokyo and Florida. Doors were closed for good and in total nearly 1300 skilled artists and craftsmen were fired. The company, best known for it's handcrafted animated features, no longer wanted artists to draw for them. DREAM ON SILLY DREAMER is the new animated documentary, from director Dan Lund and producer Tony West, that tells this tale. It features interviews recorded only seconds after the now infamous "Tom Meeting". You will hear what was said, the reasons offered by the company and feel the emotional responses from those being affected at ... Written by Tony West

Good not great
31 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at comic con 2006.

This is a good (but not great) doc about the demise of Disney's traditional 2D animation division.

Lots of sketchbook art given simple animation ( I expected better- especially since its all about how there's a lot of unemployed animators now).

Why not one good clean shot of the house hat animation building?

There's a drawing of it and a shot of some fireworks near it...

is it still there?

what would the cartoonists have preferred?

no interviews with Walts relatives?

No examples of fine 2D vs 3D? I understand about copyrighted images- but aren't you allowed to use short sample of copyrighted stuff for criticism and review?
