Here are 2 shots I animated for Enchanted and supervised by James Baxter and the final color scenes. It is always a thrill for me to see my scenes with the final color in the movie and with the BGs, camera moves, EFX, etc.

It is still amazing that we start on a blank piece of paper.


  1. Sandro, this is awesome!!!!
    Incrível! E agora você está no Brasil!!! Sucesso
    (Se quiser me aceitar como colocador de café para o entregador de café, eu topo haha)
    It would be nice to have a scene wih your planning sketches and then the rough pass too!

  2. Fala Sandro! These always impressed me, even before I learned you animate them. It´s the same thing with many ENG scenes. Like the one with the guard, when he grabs the old man. They are all impressive indeed. See ya.

  3. Hi,Sandro!I'm a 18 years old fan of animation art and also a self-taught animator.I am not a stundent in an animation school because it doesn't exist in my country,but i learn a lot of information about animating from the internet.As you probably know, learning from the internet also rise a lot of questions...
    And I think you're the right person that could help me!
    In the first place I really want to know how do you find the right timing in a scene?Do you use a metronome or something like that?
    The second would be; can you explain your process in animating a scene?And I mean from the beginning to end, how do you assign what keys tells the story and so on.I always had a fear when I start to animate a scene because I'm not sure what i am going to do...I want to specify that Im only interested in 2D hand draw animation and I love your work,it's a pleasure to study your animations! :D
    I would be honoured if youll answer to my questions!
    Thank you!

  4. The traditional animation in this film was incredible. I hate that there are only 14 minutes of it and not 90. Somebody's gotta do a new traditionally animated feature that has designs as fresh as these.(even tho this movie is 5 years old already)
