Reconsidering Rotoscoped Animation for its Second Century

quote [ I was reading a book at a coffee shop once, years ago ? maybe an old edition of John Krasner?s Motion Graphic Design and Fine Art Animation? ? that compared attempting hand-rotoscoping a feature film to serving a prison sentence. Having now served seven years at just that (ten if you count the short films), doing hard time shackled to a Wacom tablet, I think that is a pretty fair assessment of the kind of man-hours involved ]

Good article discussing the second wave of rotoscoping for the late 70s fantasy wave (pictured above) to current instances.

When the King of Comedy Posters Set His Surreal Sights on the World of Rock ?n? Roll

quote [ The multiverse of movie posters is so vast, so inexhaustible, that one collector can choose to focus exclusively on monster movies from the 1930s, another can specialize in Westerns from the 1950s, and a third can decide to go deep on French New Wave cinema from the 1960s, and all would be said to collect movie posters. ]
