A video on the usefulness of using live action reference for animation. There are a couple good shots of some rough animation of Ursula in here, too.
Fun Fact: Sherri Stoner, who was the live action reference for both Ariel and Belle, was also a writer and producer for “Tiny Toon Adventures” and “Animaniacs”, and did the voice of Slappy Squirrel.
Disney Behind the Scenes - Live Reference Models
“after the popularity of “Footage Loose” we were asked to create “PUSH IT”. A comedy video that was to be shown before a day long acting workshop for the animators. To help loosen us up and get us in good spirits. Enjoy. It’s a really dumb parody of those wierd 80’s rock videos. Starring Dreamworks animators and showcasing the live action reference they’ve shot on the job while creating your favourite animated movies.
