Here's a great video discovery of Walter Lantz, the creator of Woody Woodpecker and many other characters, as he walks viewers through the details of what's involved in the direction of an animated film.

What's fascinating about this look back in time, is that even though much has changed when it comes to animation production, the process and responsibilities of a director have remained basically the same.

Here's a find. Check out this footage from some time in the 1930s.

It features Walter Lantz at an animation studio producing Oswald the Rabbit cartoons.

A fascinating look at animation production from a bygone era.
