This is from a great short done by Pete Docter. Note: this cel was personalized to me, by Pete.
This can sometimes make a cel worth more money, however, I don't plan on ever selling this cel.
Unfortunately, Palm Springs is not widely available on tape. BUT, Pete gave me permission to
put part of it on my page.
If you would like to be the first (only?) person on your block to see this animation (.AVI) just click on Palm Springs. (3.644 Meg, zipped)
Sigmund tries out the tree
As you can see, the animation style is very rough.
This was the style the Pete chose to use, it works well for this short.
The Man in Next Door
This cel is from Next Door. A Pete Docter Animation about two completely incompatible
This man is very scheduled. Here he checks his watch before sitting down to watch TV.
This animation is available commercially on video tape, and has been shown at many local animation
The girl in Next Door
This cel is also from Next Door. Pete got a young girl to do the voice of this character by having
her tell stories while he recorded them.
The result is charming and spontaneous. She is completely unlike the man, until it is discovered that they
have one thing in common.
This Animation is Pete's personal favorite. If you see this Animation, check the credits, it almost wasn't
The young boy in Winter
Note the subtle colors in these two cels. (sorry, they look better in person)
Pete hand colored each frame on paper with colored pencils, and then cut out the characters, and glued
them to the cel.
He was looking for a subtle, soft look for this animation. The sound track has no voices, the story is told
with a single piano.
This delightful story is simply about a boy wanting to go outside and play in the snow.
Here he has discovered that it is snowing outside.
The young boy in Winter
After getting all bundled up by his mother, the boy has found that he is unable to move! This animation is also available on video tape. It was critically acclaimed at the local animation festival where I first saw it, and met Pete Docter & John Lasseter.
