Walt Disney – An Animation Inspiration For Us All

Walt Disney - An Animation Inspiration For Us All

Walt Disney: An Animation Inspiration For Us All - Animation is one of the most versatile mediums for digital content, limited only by the extent of your imagination. In today’s modern world a myriad of forms and styles have emerged, but nearly every advancement can be traced back to the father of modern animation—the world-famous creator of Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney himself.

Disney recognised early on the possible power of the emerging field of animation and was a pioneer in the art of creating animation as a form of entertainment. He saw the potential that the medium had to tell engaging stories, drive home powerful messages, and leave audiences thoroughly entertained. It is because of his innovations that studios such as Pushed have been able to rise to the forefront of digital content as artists successfully harness the power of animated images to regale, inform, and educate.

Walt Disney’s impact on the field of animation

Walt Disney’s pioneering vision allowed him to create an incredible fantasy world that continues to enchant millions of people across the globe, even decades after Disney’s own death. He was unafraid to push the limits of what was thought to be possible and to take what was currently being done even further than before. Some of the advancements that he is credited with include:

  • Synchronising sound with animation: Although it seems like an obvious choice to us today, Disney was among the first people to understand the power of using cartoons to tell a story by synchronising sound with his short animation Steamboat Willie, featuring the character that soon became beloved the world over as Mickey Mouse.
  • Full-length animated film: Although animation was not a new invention by this point, Walt Disney’s endeavor to create the first full-length animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, was widely regarded as a fool’s errand and was even referred to as “Disney’s folly.” However, after three long years of work, Disney proved that it could be done, releasing the film to widespread success. Even to this day, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is regarded as a hallmark in the animation and cinematic worlds.
  • Groundbreaking technological advancements: Following the release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Disney continued to push the barriers of what was believed possible for animation. His studio was responsible for creating standards for realistically animating animals and implementing stereophonic sound in commercial films, as well as a number of other technological and artistic developments.
