Pair that kind of geometric detail with lots of intricate snap zooms, pans, and other camera moves that rendering software tends to find challenging. I spent days hand-pruning the shrubs, bushes, leaves, and branches.
Afterwards, these rendered frames were heavily processed in a 2-D compositing package to give it that saturated, atmospheric, painterly look. It takes a lot of extra time to make a movie look the way Tangled does, but it was worth it.
Shannon McGee: After finishing up on Ralph, I wanted to devote more time developing Santa's Helper, which is an epic animated holiday adventure written by Erik von Wodtke. It's an amazing story about overcoming adversity set against the backdrop of Dutch folklore. We are currently in development and seeking the right producer. If you are an animation fan, on IMDb you can check out some of the development art by Doug A. Sirois. It is going to be a wonderful picture.Thank you Shannon. We'll think of you during the 2013 Academy Awards. You and your fellow animation artists are an inspiration to us all.
