Thank you internet, for this 15 minute clip from 1974 of Terry Gilliam explaining cut out animation.
My fascination with animation has been reignited, as it always is after seeing amazing work (Fantastic Mr. Fox, I’m looking at you). This reminds me that I’ve been meaning to post our stop motion Save the Dates from our wedding a few years back, complete with a how-to, as well. wait for it. but not for long.
