    2D Animation in the VR Clouds The Making of Disney’s “a kite’s tale”



    The experimental animated virtual reality short “a kite’s tale” required cgi and hand-drawn characters to interact in a highly art-directed environment made of spectacular clouds. In this talk we’ll examine the workflows developed to create the short, with particular emphasis on the integration of hand-drawn animation and performant real-time cloud rendering.
