At the Google I/O Conference this week, famed former Disney animator Glen Keane (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled) debuted a new interactive animation called Duet as part of Google’s ATAP’s Spotlight Stories, which are created exclusively for consumption on mobile devices.
Duet is the third installment in the Spotlight Stories initiative, and the first to be completely hand-drawn. In the presentation below, ATAP’s Regina Dugan and Keane explain the process for transforming the traditionally drawn animations into something new and interactive. The presentation starts at 38:04 and Duet begins at 54:19. (via Animation World Network)
