“Feast,” a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation for “Paperman”) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.
While we were an all expense paid Disney Press Tour a couple of months ago we, the group of bloggers on the trip, were lucky enough to see the new short film called “Feast”. This adorable short film will be shown before “Big Hero 6” which is out in theaters on November 7, 2014.
We were fortunate to get to interview the creator/director of “Feast”, Patrick Osborne. Feast came about through the Walt Disney animation Studio’s Spark program—which invites artists to explore their own unique ideas in a month-long project that is presented to the Studio team. Any employee can submit and idea for a short animated film. An idea is chosen and the film gets made. Patrick Osborne submitted an idea that was tied to a project that he did where he took made videos of his meals every day. He was then able to see trends in his meals and things happening in his life.
the idea was to tell a story through food and a small dog. The small dog is Winston and the feast is everything that he eats through the course of the short film. You see a range of emotions shown according to the events of the lives of Winston and his owner.
This short film will be talked about as was a previous short film, “Paperman”, a move where Osborne was Head of Animation. It is adorable and the little puppy, Winston, will warm your heart. I loved it and cannot wait for the kids to see it because they will love it as well. Winston is cute and spunky. His antics are fun to watch.
“Feast” is a lifetime in six minutes. I want to tell you so much more about this short film but I don’t want to spoil your experience. Just know that it is adorable, moving and so well done.
