Learn About Cut-Out Animation With Terry Gilliam
space
BAADASSSSS!   |  

I was checking out the website Dangerous Minds earlier this week and I found this interesting clip taken from an episode of Bob Godfrey’s Do-It-Yourself Animation Show, which first aired on British television back in 1974. The video is of a very young Terry Gilliam breaking down the techniques he employed as an animator on Monty Python’s Flying Circus, a style of animation known as “cut-out.” You can check out the full 14-minute clip below this article.

It’s a nice little tutorial and the ever mirthful Gilliam in the years before he became one of cinema’s most unique visionary directors makes an excellent instructor. Host Bob Godfrey sits in on the proceedings. Meanwhile, Gilliam’s demonstration is intercut with clips of his animated segments from Flying Circus.

Godfrey’s program was a great influence on future animation superstars like Nick Park, the creator of Wallace & Gromit, and other notable animators who have gone on to work for Disney and Pixar.

Without further adieu, here’s Terry.
