SSNPod #233 | Disney’s Road to “Snow White” | #saysomethingreal

2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the wide release of Walt Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the first of their animated features and a film classic. The SSN Crew traces the early history of the Disney studio, the ingenuity of animation pioneers such as Ub Iwerks and Burt Gillett, early cartoon shorts like “Steamboat Willie” and “Three Little Pigs,” the creation of Mickey Mouse, and an analysis of the techniques used to bring the film to life.
