Destiny or Destino? Salvador Dali meets Walt Disney

In 1946, Spanish surrealist icon, Salvador Dali, formed an unlikely friendship with American animation legend, Walt Disney, and they spent a short time collaborating on a short film called Destino. Unfortunately, only eighteen seconds of Destino were ever shot, the project was postponed because of financial reasons, as well as word of it being too extreme for the time. In 1999, Roy Disney reconstructed the entire short using computer rendering and hand-drawn imagery based on the original sketches and storyboards. The result was released in 2003. This is what it is: AMAZING!
