Our post about Ryan Estrada’s quixotic quest to produce an entire animated feature in one month sparked a discussion in the comments about whether it’s possible for anybody to do such a thing.
Robcat2075 did the math and thinks it’s a feasible idea. He explains how in his comment:
-If we take 40 minutes as the Academy minimum for a feature that’s 2400 seconds to fillâ€¦
-If you shot on 4’s that’s 14400 drawings neededâ€¦
-Ub Iwerks famously did 600 animation drawings in one dayâ€¦
-14400/600 = 24 days, leaving 7 days for painting, backgrounds, postâ€¦
It’s possible! A cleverly planned production might get done.
