"Animating female characters are extremely difficult. They have to go through a range of emotions, and having a film with two female characters and building distinguishing aspects was hard."
Michael Lee on animating Frozen
So that’s their (blatantly misogynistic) excuse for scrapping all but two of the female characters; that they’re too hard to animate? Those emotional female characters, they’re all the same, right? Here’s a hint: their “femaleness” isn’t what’s making them indistinguishable.
WHAT IN THE EVER LIVING FUCK THERE IS SO MUCH WRONG WITH THIS SHIT I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START
Apparently Disney is just absolutely shitty at character design. Huh. That’s a fucking shame, ain’t it?
Disney continuing to be a piece of shit in so many ways
reminder to never give Disney any money
Here’s the original source BTW: http://voice.fan.tv/2013/10/07/frozen-animating-disneys-newest-musical/
"Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna (Kristen Bell) being angry.”
IM AN ANIMATOR, IM A GIRL, AND THIS IS ALL FUCKING BULLSHIT AND I WANT TO SLAP SOME PEOPLE VIOLENTLY WHEN I READ THAT CRAP OK.
People are people, if this Michael Lee finds it soooo difficult to animate a lady, it’s probably because he’s a misogynistic mofo whose range of research and interest when he learned about animation was limited to clichés and himself.
FU, this is BS.
