An interesting segment in which the whales end up flying through the air. This setup includes two cels (one of the whales and one of the bubble effects) on the Master Background. This had a nice feel to it -- a flowing quality, curiosity and hope...
Two Cel Setup On Master Background
The entry in Wikipedia notes:
Ottorino Respighi's Pines of Rome – this segment features a family of frolicking humpback whales that are able to fly due to a supernova. At one point, the whale calf is separated from his parents when he's trapped in an iceberg, later finding his way out with his mother's help. The final section, the Via Appia gives the impression of the larger pod of adults in migration.
