“The multi-plane camera had levels and on each of these levels we put a big glass on it. We’d paint the foreground trees on the top one, the background, the house that you’re photographing, the characters come out and on the fourth level would be the sun and the sky. When the camera panned down through these levels, you got a third dimension effect.”

- Bob Broughton, Camera Effects Artist for Walt Disney Productions

"It was a difficult picture because we’d never done any animal with anatomy and Walt wanted the deer to be very believable." - Ollie Johnston, Animator 

"Walt’s idea was to get all of his artists to draw in the way of the old masters and then put them to animation. They started bringing in real animals and having them on the sound stages and it became a zoo in itself." - Mel Shaw, Animator
