What other art am I looking at while I make this film?
I’m a huge fan of René Laloux and I always marveled at the cut out replacement animation he used in Fantastic Planet. It’s unusual to see relatively smooth, key framed, layered animation that also has the rich textures cut outs can afford. The technique I am attempting is basically cut out replacement animation but without having to actually cut a million tiny drawings by hand. I am basically animating on a green screen and letting the computer do my cutting.
