Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses and examines the work of the Fleischer brothers, who introduced a new level of realism into animation style with their development of such technologies as the rotograph, the turntable camera, and the rotoscope. These technologies were in part designed to facilitate the animation process by allowing the animators to trace real motion, to place their animated figures in what seemed to be real-world contexts.

Keywords: Fleischer brothers; new level of realism; animation style; rotograph; turntable camera; rotoscope; animation process; real motion; real-world contexts
