On Sprit: Stallion of the Cimerron I was the Supervisor for all of the Cavalry and Cavalry Horse characters, together with Alex Williams. We also helped out on character designs and model sheets for those characters. The animation was done in both 2D and 3D.
Prior to production we had a 9 month training program. We were taught horse psychology and behavior by paleontologist Dr. Deb Bennett and anatomy and biomechanics by paleontologist Dr. Stuart Sumida. The life drawing classes were run by Glenn Villpu.
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2003.
