Animation: Nat Falk’s How To Make Animated Cartoons Part One

Nat Falk Book

Today, we began digitizing an extraordinary book… Nat Falk’s "How To Make Animated Cartoons". Published in 1941, this book brings together information from all of the major studios of the day… Disney, Terrytoons, Screen Gems, Warner Bros, Fleischer, Lantz and Harman-Ising. It’s wild to see Popeye on the cover right next to Andy Panda and Farmer Al Falfa… You’ll never see competing studios cooperate to create a book like this today!

This particular copy of "Animated Cartoons" has its own history… It belonged to one of the pioneers of animation, Carlo Vinci, and it was given to him as a gift by Paul Terry himself.

Here then, is the first installment of Nat Falk’s "Animated Cartoons"… consisting of a forward by Paul Terry, a chapter on the history of animation and an overview of the animation studios of the time. The animation history chapter is fascinating, because it includes information from first hand sources about the early days of animation in New York. Learn who did the first double exposed effects, who was the first to use cels, who made the first color cartoons (no, not Walt Disney!) and who invented the pan background… Print it out and read it all!

Topsy TV (1957) It’s A Living (1957)

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.
