BEFORE EVER AFTER is a compilation of never-before-seen lecture notes from classes that were held in preparation for the production ofSnow White. Walt knew that to fulfill his once-impossible dream of crafting a feature-length animated film,he had to establish an on-campus art school for his staff. He hand-picked Don Graham, a respected instructor from the Chouinard Art Institute, to hold classes on entertainment, drawing, and acting and was also innovative enough to document the thought process behind the nascent art form of feature animation.Guest lecturers included Frank Lloyd Wright who spoke about art philosophy and USC psychology professor Dr. Boris Morkovin who talked about humor. Previously unseen outside of the Disney studios, these lecture notes contain the wisdom behind the artistry that audiences generation after generation have come to appreciate inSnow White, and this wisdom also provided the artistic foundation for many films to come.
