Terry Gilliam’s Do It Yourself Animation Show

In this vintage 14-minute how-to during the age of Python, "the arch idler of all time" Terry Gilliam ignores his own advice to keep well away from film animation because "it's dangerous, nasty stuff," and swiftly gets serious about the merits of learning cut-out, stop-motion animation. Drawing material from old photographs and magazines, he talks about storyboarding, playing with scale, layering and juxtaposing dissimilar objects for a dazzling new effect—all things any animator needs to remember when working. As he uses examples from Monty Python's Flying Circus, brief albeit absurd nudity ensues.
