Video Friday #2: Dali + Disney = Destino

shoutOut on 14/9/12 by travis.lyle1 in peeps

Happy Friday to you, wherever you are, and welcome to the second ever Video Friday here on Springleap. Today we bring you a piece of animation so rare and so beautiful that it's earned the title of being one of the greatest pieces of animation of all time. It's a creation started in 1945 as the result of a collaboration between the godfather of Surrealism, the legendary Salvador Dali, and the godfather of animation, Walter E Disney.

Due to various factors (including financial issues at Walt Disney Studios in the post-war era), the project was shelved in 1946, and lay in the Disney archive until 1999, when Walt's nephew Roy E. Disney unearthed the original and formed a team to resurrect the short film, which was finally released in 2003, 58 years after its inception.

The result? Destino - the love story of Chronos, the personification of time, and a mortal woman falling in love. As a testament to the imagination of Dali and the skill of the Disney animators, this stands as one of the greatest creative enterprises of all time.

Sit back, relax and prepare to be blown away:
