Timing and bar-sheets revisited...
Here is a bar-sheet that was prepared for the planning of the sound effects. It is for all intents and purposes a true bar-sheet, with beat indications, so it is easily followed, especially since music is such a great part of it. Take out your Disney Treasures DVD: Mickey Mouse in Living Color Vol.1 Disc 1, and tap your way through it, and study how Dave Hand timed this classic Mickey film, beat for beat.
To keep the small green letters readable, I decided to retain the size of my original photos. Each is around 200 KB. I also stuffed all 13 into one 2.5 MB ZIP file, that you can get by clicking the .zip image.

Don Graham hosts Dave Hand (1)
Here is the transcript from the Action Analysis Class of Thursday, February 27th, 1936, lead by Don Graham on the "Director's relationship to the picture and to the animator", with Dave Hand as the guest speaker. In this document we see how one of Disney's most important directors worked with his animators - how much freedom he gave them - how he handed out scenes. Now... If this meeting had been yesterday, I'd be amazed at the importance and topicality. But this was just over 70 (SEVENTY) years ago!!! I wonder why we haven't seen this before, as directors through the ages could have benefitted from reading it. The Hand-Out has always been a crucial - though much overlooked - part of direction for as far as I remember...
