the collection of scenes above is from my favorite short
out of the ZAGREB animation studio. done in 1961 -
DON KIHOT or DON QUIXOTE. design, animation, back-
grounds and direction by the master - vladimir kristl.
another one of my favorites from studio ZAGREB -
INSPEKTOR SE VRATIO KUCI or THE INSPECTOR
RETURNS HOME, 1959, script and direction vatroslav
mimica, design aleksander marks, animation vladimir
jutrisa, backgrounds zlatko bourek.
these films inspired me, more than the disney, WB or MGM
movies, to start animation myself. I always thought of it as
moving art. hand crafted art created on paper and cels, with
smelly real color and ink. and that is what 'real' animation
will always be for me.
