When you think of animated Disney movies, your mind should automatically think of Glen Keane.
He’s the mastermind behind the characters of The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Tarzan, and Tangled.
During Google’s I/O event, Mr. Keane debuted his new short film, Duet, which tells the story of Mia and Tosh and how their individual paths in life weave together to create an inspired duet. The unique, interactive nature of the story allows the viewer to seamlessly follow the journey of either of the two characters from birth to adulthood.
The short film, set to launch later this year on the platform, used more than 10,055 drawings to make it look good on a smartphone’s 60 frames-per-second standard.
