When I was a kid in the early 80's I knew I wanted to work with drawings, either comics or animation but when I first saw The Secret of Nimh I was hooked in becoming an animator. I just could not believe someone drew those amazing designs and animated those great characters like the owl, the crow and the villain. At the time, before internet of course, there's no much information I could find about this new studio or their artists specially living in Brazil.
Slowly I discovered who did this amazing film and learned about their creators, Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and John Pomeroy, who left the Disney Studios to start a new one and with a crew of very talented artists and animators created their first and best project.
I will write more about them and this film in the future but now I want to show some of the most beautiful storyboards I have ever seen. All done by Don Bluth himself.
If you have never seen the film, please do so, you will discover some beautiful and powerful art.
