Animated story boards are the test vehicles, a technique borrowed from Studio Ghibli. No out takes or unnecessary effort required.

Animated story boards are the test vehicles, a technique borrowed from Studio Ghibli. No out takes or unnecessary effort required.

Story reels have been around a long time. And if something's not going to work, it's better to excise it before spending time animating it. Sometimes, however, technical problems can occur with computer animation or rendering (e.g. Donkey's hair looking like a Chia Pet® on final render), and sometimes scenes will "work" for people familiar with the film and yet fall flat for a real audience. The Pocahontas DVD includes some deleted scenes whose state of completion ranges from story reel to finished color. Some deleted scenes are partially-animated or even partially-colored, suggesting that there had been an intention to keep parts of them even though they were eventually abandoned completely.
