Art Story is the brainchild of veteran animators Aaron Blaise and Chuck Williams who have worked for over 20 years at Disney Animation Studios (in beloved films including Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King and respectively co-directing and producing Brother Bear) and they are presenting a unique premise that, if fully funded can become a spectacular film. Art Story is a blend of animation and the art of classic paintings. It tells the story of Walt, a focused, control freak boy and his eccentric grandfather who get stuck in an infinite world of classic paintings by famous painters like Van Gogh, Warhol, Picasso, Dali, Da Vinci and more. They'll have to find a way to return to the real world but also to stop a villain from escaping the 'painting world' and coming to ours. All these while also working on their relationship. The directors promise a film full of fun, great animation that will blend with the style of each painting and emotional characters that will surely provide top-notch entertainment for the whole family.
