Marguerite De La Motte, The Beloved Brute, 1924
fancy “fuck you” to the audience
Dansa Serpentina (1900) [x]
Fun fact: there are actually hundreds of these kinds of videos. Often called Serptine/Butterfly/Annabelle Dances, they are some of the earliest things filmed. They give a modern viewer insight into just how groundbreaking it was to view things moving not in reality. Further, the colors you see are hand painted. Contrary to popular belief, most silent films (about 90%) were premiered in color with either tinting or hand painting.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
For some of their films, Disney would film real actors so that the animators could watch them for reference.
MUTO is an amazing stop-motion video created by Italian street artist Blu by painstakingly painting and re-painting walls and other surfaces in Buenos Aires. It’s a wonderfully strange journey around the city.
Blu + Street Art + Animation = Completely Awesome
Thanks, Archie McPhee, for reminding me that this amazingness exists!
