Terry Gilliam On Cut Out Animation

Monty Python era Terry Gilliam gives a lesson in the cut out animation he was so well known for. Watching this, site I was struck by how inventive Gilliam was in playing with perspective and appropriating images as well as how maddeningly fiddly the entire process seems. Even with the help of tape I would be terrified that a stray gust of air or a sneeze would take everything away with it. Stop motion animators have nerves of steel and more patience than I shall ever possess.

    Yay, cut-out animation!

    I’m doing a stop motion film for my final year Uni piece. I’ve had lots of fun knocking my models over mid-shot ;)
