Not only were his animations original, but they were innovative. Disney constantly pushed himself to find new ways to advance the medium through which he transmitted his ideas. Starting simply with comics in his school newspaper, Walt Disney evolved his technique to create films and animations, breaking bounds first by creating the first animation with synchronized sound, then the first animation to be done in color, and then the first animated feature film, his musical movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
