Sample text

Thus, early cinematic animation encompassed not only the hybrid efforts that recall the lightning sketch, but also conventionally drawn fi lms, silhouette fi lms, doll and puppet fi lms, Claymation, and the like. All could stake a claim as a type of animation thanks to their common concern with giving life to things, that is, with animating space, but all are equally interesting for their different strategies at constructing or appropriating an animating space, for fashioning a world that, as those sketching hands suggest, invites us in.

Moreover, the sketching hand signals a fundamental aesthetic distinction, that between a three-dimensional world that was captured in the live-action portion of the presentation and a flat, two-dimensional one that often recalled those newspaper and magazine entries. It is in the crossing—or in some cases, the intentional blurring—of these different borders that our various standard histories of animation have essentially measured out the historical emergence of the form. But all these boundaries or borders share a more fundamental importance for the films in this vein, since they also point up some key dynamics of the form.

The fi lm repeatedly seems far more interested in demonstrating the sort of elaborate surface patterns that might be formed, however, as Reiniger frequently arranges multiple characters in the frame in ways that produce what can only be described as ornate images that seem more fundamentally linked to the stylings of Art Nouveau (or the German Jugendstil) than to anything modernist. In fact, Leslie suggests that Reiniger’s work essentially failed because its only connection “with modernism’s logic” was through its “oscillation between a stark flatness and the exploration of depth through its fakery” (50)—that is, insofar as it made audiences aware of its limited efforts at constructing space.
