Dick William's Documentary
September 13th, 2007

NY based animator Michael Sporn's Blog as had some great postings recently on the work of Eyvind Earle and the animated endcredits done by Richard William's London Studio for the film A FUNNY THING HAPPENED TO ME ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM( 196-?)

A caller also made us aware that someone on U-Tube has posted the Thames Television documentary done about Dick's Studio in 1981. Great footage from the Thief, and of Art Babbitt and Ken Harris teaching the crew. For those who've never seen footage of the Thief, when watching all these madly turning M.C Escher-like structures, remember there is no computer animation anywhere there. It was all done painstakingly by eye by some wonderful draftspeople.

Check it out.
