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.
