We made it to 200,000 likes on Facebook!! We wanted to thank everyone out there for your support. When you hear anyone say Traditional Animation or Hand Drawn Animation is dead, don’t believe them. It is growing strong and one day will be HUGE again. Remember, don’t be fooled by imitation, there is only ONE Traditional Animation! We have had a great ride so far since we started in 2011. We created the Traditional Animation show, helped numerous crowdfunding campaigns and even teamed up with Don Bluth and Gary Goldman for the Dragon’s Lair Indiegogo campaign. We are proud of spreading the word of 2d Traditional Animation around the world and that means a lot to us here. We have SO MUCH planned for the future, be sure to keep checking back and follow us on our social media pages! Thank you again. 🙂

Lavalle Lee

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. Many cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators in Orlando, FL.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, voice actor and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. In 2017, Lavalle brought the idea of creating a school to Don Bluth, and Don Bluth University was born. After a decade of learning from Don Bluth and working together on multiple pitches and business ventures, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.

    About Snow white, I just watched the Bluray yesterday and I really wonder if the pictures are not re-framed, I mean not full, cropped images. As if it was a bit zoomed. Am I right ?
