One of the very best YouTube channels around, Every Frame A Painting, is back with another stellar video. Usually the videos focus on framing and filmmaking style and timing, but for this special entry in the series, the focus is the late, great animated film director, writer, and animator Chuck Jones and his evolution as an artist. Jones is best remembered for his work directing many classic Looney Tunes shorts.

Still obsessed with Chuck Jones' coyote/roadrunner rules. Awesome to so clearly, concisely define your characters. pic.twitter.com/MRd4zguD93
If you grew up watching Looney Tunes, then you know Chuck Jones, one of all-time masters of visual comedy. Normally I would talk about his ingenious framing and timing, but not today. Instead, I’d like to explore the evolution of his sensibilities as an artist. To see the names of the films, press the CC button and select “Movie Titles.”
