A entertaining and comprehensive look at the history of animation worldwide. Animated
characters, the Professor and Horace demonstrate different animation techniques, including
pin screen, pixillation, rotoscope, and cutout and puppet animation. They discuss the most
significant animated films of the past 100 years– everything from Emile Reynaud and Winsor
McCay's early works, to Fleischer, Disney and Warner Brothers in the United States, to
historically important films from every continent. Trnka, Svankmajer, Ocelot, Plympton,
Aardman, Servais – they are all included. Professor Elderberry and Horace were created by
Bill Plympton, America's most prolific, most successful independent animator. They were
animated by Konstantin Bronzit, winner of numerous awards including the 1995 Grand Prize
at the Annecy Animation Festival and three major prizes at the 1999 Festival.
