"I've always loved the music from the Saturday matinee serial, and I figured a short that was animated to this music could be a really cool piece. I designed the character mixing all the traits from my favorite Superman actors from the past, and then looked at the work of Hugh Ferriss for inspiration on the background design." - Superman Classic (yt) - A Superman fan film by disney animator by Disney animator Robert Pratt.

Very nice. Although especially now that Disney owns Marvel that's practically begging for a DMCA takedown notice.

Neat. Very evocative of Tom de Haven's It's Superman!

Yeah pretty much the only thing wrong about this is that it's too short.

In my head Superman lives in the 1930s-40s so this is just perfect.

This is pretty nifty!

I am not big on some of his design choices but hell, he wants to animate something this lovingly as a fun project, he can draw it however he wants!
