    The Land Before Time Background Color Keys Group of 3 (Amblin/Sullivan Bluth Studios, 1988). During the age of the dinosaurs, a massive famine forces several herds of dinosaurs to seek an oasis known as the Great Valley in Don Bluth's animated feature film, The Land Before Time. The film was released on 11/18/88. From The Land Before Time we have three superb background Color Keys. Color Keys are preliminary background paintings often created in miniature size that production teams use for animated features and shorts. Color Keys allow the production team to problem solve and control opportunities by giving them a chance to change a hue, or even a lighting value within a given scene and enhance the overall mood. The Color Keys measure 12.75" x 4.5", 13.5" x 6", and 10.25" x 6". These three amazing miniature pieces could easily be framed and displayed as Fine Art or added to an animation art collection. Condition is Very Good. From the MacLaughlin Family Disney Collection.
