With the Holiday Season marching speedy this year, what are your some of the favorite Family Traditions you would like to indulge into? Is it baking? Singing? Knitting together or preparing gifts for the family and friends? Whatever it is – DO IT TOGETHER. Celebrate every day of this Holiday atmosphere and recharge yourself and the others in your life with an incredible feeling of being connected to life and to each other.
And if you think that you do not have any family traditions – think again! Be like Olaf in a new Disney•PIXAR short movie OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE where this brave snowman embarks onto his own quest for a… – you’ve guessed it right! – Family Holiday Tradition!
• Olaf, voiced by Josh Gad (“Marshall,” “Book of Mormon”)
• Anna, voiced by Kristen Bell (“Frozen,” “Bad Moms”)
• Elsa, voiced by Idina Menzel (Broadway’s “Wicked,” “Rent” and “If/Then”; Fox’s “Glee”), and
• Kristoff, voiced by Jonathan Groff (Broadway’s “Hamilton,” Netflix’s “Mindhunter”)
The music, the celebration of the art of animation is one of the best in this Holiday edition of Disney•PIXAR short!
You can surely get all the songs and melodies from this Olaf short movie on your own Olaf Soundtrack!
We met with the animators who have worked on Olaf’s Frozen Adventure and shared with us the long and tedious process of making all emotions, feelings, fabric movement, light gradation and more to come to live and feel like in real life. To achieve this likeness with real things in our life, animators had to relive emotions and feelings in the movie. Those who worked on creating close relation between different objects – like velvet fabric and clothes, as one of hundreds of examples, – with those we know in real life, had to invent a new process of animating techniques that had never been used before!
Innovation Is The Name of the Game
This Disney•PIXAR short movie is yet again an example of top innovation in the art of animation.
Animation is based on Real Life’s Emotion
First acted out by a real person. Then, animated into the action in the movie.
The Moose Scene Was A Challenge
Animation Example for Innovative Technique
In order to create more than 600 frames of animation in this sequence from “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” every character pose and background was painted on a predefined grid pattern. All of these painted assets were then assembled and animated (in sync with music) frame by frame, exported to a texture map, and then applied to a scarf model to accomplish this unique final aesthetic.
I had a chance to draw my own Olaf by following directions from the Disney•PIXAR animator team! Here he is – OLAF!
Watch Olaf’s Frozen Adventure Dec. 14th on ABC TV!
