Animation Resources Members: Reference Pack 019 Is Now Available For Download!

Rackham

Animation Resources Members: A new Reference Pack has just been posted on the members only page. Login and you’ll find some incredible images and animation to inspire you and help you grow as an artist.

This time we have a fabulous e-book packed with high resolution scans of watercolors by Arthur Rackham. Rackham was one of the greatest book illustrators of all time, and we are sharing two of his most famous books with you- Rip Van Winkle and Grimm’s Fairy Tales. These are significant because they are the images that inspired the designers at Disney to create Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Also included in Reference Pack 19 are three very early Betty Boop cartoons with animation by Grim Natwick. Natwick was one of the greatest animators who ever lived and his animation of Betty Boop is a landmark in personality animation.

Rounding out the RefPack are a few films by the Canadian experimental animator, Norman McLaren. McLaren’s films embody the purest form of animation imaginable, completely removed from technique, focusing totally on timing, shape and color.

We hope you find these materials useful in your work. Click on the link to the Members Only page to access the files.

In the mid-1950s theatrical films were being challenged by television. In order to compete, movie studios started producing films that used techniques that television couldn’t imitate- 3D and widescreen in particular. The two films we are sharing with you in this Reference Pack are photographed in Cinemascope, one of the widest aspect ratios ever used. You’ll notice that the animators keep the action in the center of the screen most of the time. This is probably because they knew that these cartoons would eventually be broadcast on television. The irony of that self imposed limitation couldn’t have been lost on them.

It’s rare to see widescreen cartoons in their original aspect ratio. We are fortunate that Animation Resources Advisory Board member, Steve Stanchfield came across these original theatrical prints and transferred them for us. We are sharing them with you in high definition. Please forgive the longer than normal download time.
