Man On The Land (UPA/1951)
Animation Resources Advisory Board member, Steve Stanchfield recently contributed a high quality transfer of UPA’s Man On The Land to our collection of digitized animated films. This early industrial film includes animation by Pat Matthews, Grim Natwick and Art Babbitt, but animation isn’t the primary attraction here. It’s the drop dead brilliant layouts by Director Bill Hurtz, Associate Director Art Heinemann and background artists Bob Dranko, Boris Gorelick and Paul Julian (among others). Just about every setup in this film is strong enough to be an illustration in a book. Check out the depth and lighting in these backgrounds. They may be painted flat, but they sure aren’t composed flat. If you are interested in studying how to use camera movement creatively, this is a perfect film to study. No matter what part of the background the camera is panning over, the compositions are always absolute perfection.
