Lion King Bloopers
During Fall 2011, Disney released the Disney Diamond Edition: The Lion King Blu-ray DVD to the marketplace. Creative Capers is honored to have been chosen to produce a very special piece of bonus content for this release. This four-minute piece is full theatrical, feature film animation of the highest caliber, which brought back together many of the famous artists from the original film itself. Considered a wild success, the blooper reel currently has over 10 million views on YouTube.
Fun fact: All of the original Supervising Animators were hired to recreate their famous characters. Creative Capers worked with so many talented people on this project including Andreas Deja, Tony Fucile, Ruben Aquino, Alex Kupershmidt, Tony Bancroft and Mike Surrey. It was an unforgettable experience!
Inbetween & Cleanup
Fun fact: Creative Capers hired the original inbetween and cleanup art team from the film. All ink and paint was handled in house using ToonBoom software with a skilled team of artists. They painstakingly matched the same color palettes and gradients from the film provided by the Disney Archives. Compositing and FX was also handled in house to make sure every frame matched perfectly with the original scenes.
