Dr. Facilier

This might come as a surprise to you, but I was involved in a bunch of scenes featuring Dr. Facilier in The Princess and the Frog.
I remember that at the time story material and layouts for Mama Odie were still being worked on.
So I was asked to help out in the Facilier unit, which was lead by Bruce Smith, an amazing animator.
These are some of the scenes I animated. I drew the reacting characters as well.
I recall that two or three of my scenes were cut in order to improve story continuity. And Bruce re-animated a couple of my scenes because my timing wasn't up to Facilier.

But I really enjoyed animating him in this terrific, spooky Voodoo sequence .
