Donald’s Better Self

In his Animator’s Survival Kit, Richard Williams talks about the time he went to a screening of The Jungle Book.

I had a similiar experience, though it wasn’t quite as dramatic. Donald Duck bouncing along with his entire body swaying back and forth is so far beyond anything I’ve done or will likely ever be allowed to do.
