Why a duck? Why an ark?
Here's a fun piece by art director, Dan Cooper, that he did for Pomp and Circumstance. Unfortunately, this old copy doesn't convey any of the incredible color and light subtlety of Dan's original. For a real treat watch Fantasia 2000's Pomp and Circumstance and pay attention to the color and light.
If you look carefully you'll notice that the ark is actually shaped kind of like a duck. Only a great art director pays such attention to detail.
I learned so much from all of my crew. Thank you all.
