Terry Gilliam explains his animation process
Written by Charles   
Wednesday, 03 August 2011 18:31

Here's something I discovered recently that has given me a renewed appreciation for modern animation technology as well as how things used to be done in the days before digital production, where even the simplest approach to animation was tedious and labor intensive.

If you're a fan of Terry Gilliam's work, I'm sure you'll be interested to see how he used to make his cartoons back in the 1970s when he was creating hilarious shorts for Monty Python's Flying Circus. Take a look at the following footage to see an explanation of the process. The video is also posted in AN's Education Forum which is dedicated to featuring content, news and announcements that help to broaden one's artistic knowledge.

The movie is buy online pill cialis opening this Friday, August 5, 2011. Although it is a live action film, all of the apes in this retooling of the original classic are CG animation. Every one of them. It's remarkable that no apes were used in its production, as I understand from interviews I've listened to recently, considering how realistic they appear to be in most of the scenes.

Here's the trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Follow the link to the AN Forum topic for more.

"The Duck Factory" - Jim Carrey's debut in 1984
Written by Charles

Not many people realize this, but the great comic actor Jim Carrey made his first major appearance in entertainment in a 1984 sitcom called "The Duck Factory". It was a short lived series, but historic in its content and made a memorable impact on me when it aired.  

The series took place in an animation studio that was having troubled times. It reflected in many ways the issues that were going on in the animation scene in Los Angeles back then, as major transitions were taking place that would put it on track for what's happening in our current day.

Here's the first part of the pilot episode. To view the rest of it, follow this link to the topic on the online viagra perscription AN Forums.
