“Feast” is a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation on “Paperman”) and Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.
Disney has just shared this extended look at the animated short. I predict audiences will fall in love with Winston. What about you?
Director Patrick Osborne, who joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2008 as an animator on “Bolt,” took part in the studio’s Spark program—which invites artists to explore their own unique ideas in a month-long project that is presented to the Studio team. His experimental short “Pet” was a hit among his fellow Disney artists.
Osborne, whose credits Disney’s 2010 feature “Tangled” and 2012’s Oscar-winning short “Paperman,” for which he served as head of animation, was later tapped as co-head of animation for “Big Hero 6.” But his plans changed when he pitched the idea for “Feast” as part of WDAS’ new shorts program—the project was greenlit with Osborne as director.
Feast opens on Nov. 7, 2014, in front of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Big Hero 6.”
