CLICK TO LISTEN NOW: Animated Discussions 001: The Sawmill

Titled “Animated Discussions”, the current podcast features analysis of one of our RefPack videos, Larry Semon’s “The Saw Mill”. Back in the golden age of animation, animators at all the major studios would pack into a screening room to study silent comedy films frame by frame. There’s a lot for animators to learn from slapstick, and the film we are discussing today is a little known classic.
