Monday Classic - Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (1906)

Uploaded by YouTuber LibraryOfCongress

Published on Oct 8, 2009

Blackton (with only his arm showing on film) "draws" a series of funny faces, including a line drawing of two faces, a man with an umbrella, a line drawing of two faces in profile, a clown, faces of "Coon and Cohen," the profile of a seated man, and a bottle of Medoc.

This earliest surviving American animated film--in the strict sense of single exposures of drawings simulating movement--uses chalkboard sketches and then cut-outs to simplify the process. The opening title, animated with bits of paper, repeats a trick seen the previous year in Edison films. J. Stuart Blackton had in 1897 co-founded the Vitagraph Company, producer of the film. The flickering seen here was common to the earliest animation and resulted from the camera operators failure to achieve consistent exposure in manual one-frame cranking.

United States : Vitagraph, 1906.

Copyright: The Vitagraph Co. of America; 6Apr1906; H75272.

Digital file includes a piano score composed and performed by Philip Carli.

Changing Seasons

(Earlier this month we had put up a couple of stop motions we found with changing seasons.  Well, we went looking for a couple more. Here is the first one...)

I made this stop-motion animation all by myself for an animation production class. It took around 4 days in total, and I did everything by hand. I used paper cut-outs on construction paper, and designed all the sets and characters myself. I used black pipe cleaners for the arms and legs, and manipulated them frame-by-frame to create an animated effect. I used a regular digital camera, moved the arms and legs, the rain and clouds in separate frames and took several individual pictures (413 pictures to be exact). Then put everything together with Final Cut Pro. Filmed in its entirety in a small makeshift studio in my room.

Inspired by someone I met this summer who completely changed my life. It's a Christmas present for him, telling a story of us through the seasons. I love you, thank you for supporting me throughout this stressful and lengthy project despite not knowing I was making it for you haha :)

Hope you enjoy it, send it to someone you love, spread the word.
