“Duet” by Renowned Disney Animator Glen Keane


This video, running at three minutes and forty-two seconds has become an internet sensation and has struck the heart of thousands – possibly millions – of people around the world.

It’s a coming-of-age animated short that brings us back, briefly, to our cherished pasts of hand-drawn animation – but with a twist.

I’ve pasted the video below, which opens up with the creator and Tangled_glen_keane_image_01animator giving a little speech about the project. You may recognize him from years past, being featured on the Disney Channel or in interviews about upcoming movies during the previews that showed on your old Disney VHS tapes.

Glen Keane is the creator and animator of beloved favorites such as Ariel, the Beast, Tarzan, Aladdin, and many others. He’s recently retired from Disney animation and is proving his talent can stand on its own two feet.

In the speech he gives in the video below he says that in embracing this new technology (merging hand-drawn animation and CGI) he has “rediscovered his love of animation.” By watching the video, you can almost see the love pour forth onto the screen.

Watch the video and share your thoughts below. Share it with your friends…spread the love!
