Proud Family Animation Reference Scenes

The Proud Family Animation Reference 2 from Sandro Cleuzo on Vimeo.

In 2004 I was hired to do some work for The Proud Family Movie. My studio actually produced 3 minutes of BG layouts, animation, cleanup, EFX and even a little CGI for an alternate ending to the film that was included on the DVD.

I also did some animation of the characters dancing based on the live action dancers. It was to guide the Korean animators who were doing the animation of the entire feature.

Above you can see 2 of those scenes. I only did the key drawings for reference and the rest was finished in Korea. The director, Bruce Smith, told me to work closely with the live action video reference.

The idea in the movie is that the characters are having a "dance battle".
