Destino – a Collaboration Between Disney and Dali

You know what’s cool?  The notion that artist Salvador Dali teamed up with Disney to work on a seven-minute animated short, way back in 1946.

The short wasn’t completed and released until 2003.  “It contains many hallmarks of the surrealist painter’s work: melting timepieces, telephones, figures morphing into each other, even the “ants in the hand” trick seen in 1929’s Un Chien Andalou,” writes Whitney from Pop Candy.

I wish Disney would collaborate with other contemporary artists, to go beyond their traditional animation style, with a series of shorts that would play in front of their releases.
