Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) - 1st Keyframe Animatio

September 16, 2014, 12:35 PM

Happy Birthday to this great release. Released on September 15th, 2014. Sometimes called the world's oldest cartoon (erroneously), it is still the first to be created using keyframe animation. This movie required Winsor McCay and his assistant John A. Fitzsimmons (who traced the backgrounds) to create 10,000 drawings, which they inked on rice paper and mounted on cardboard.
