Walt Disney

If Walt was a young man in our time trying to break into animation today, how would he fare? I speculate upon the hypothetical situation in this topic on the AN Forums.

Terry Gilliam explains his animation process

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.

I discovered a nicely produced animated short film parody that's worth featuring here on AN's Homepage. Produced by David Stodolny, it's a series of three brief clips of what can happen in the alternative world of Harrey Podder.

Follow the link to the AN Forums to see another video in which David shows us how this cartoon was made.

"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" - with no apes
Written by Charles

The movie is 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.
