I love being a colorist at Mycenacave! For those of you not in the know: https://www.mycenacave.com/ It’s a cute petsite with little critters that live in caves. As a colorist, I will often use a template for the animals, but I can be asked to edit these templates according to the tastes of our clients. The toughest one as adding hair! She turned out lovely, but I had to make sure it was this perfect shiny color without making it seem too different from the style of the template.

I haven’t made many items for Mycena, but I will be working on doing more for that. Each item had to have male and female versions. Sometimes this required the item to be completely remade!

The Adventures of Prince Achmen.1926. German.The oldest surviving animated film in history.

Nonono, you don’t understand how AWESOME this movie is
because it’s not done by a big production firm, or someone with a name as big as Walt Disney, no
the writer and “mind” behind this film was a WOMAN
yes, my dear tumblr peeps, the very first trick animator in the world was a young German woman who had an idea, and enough friends and time to make a feature-length animated film. And it took her three years
because the way this movie (and some shorter works she actually did before Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed) are done is really, really complex. You see those leaves, and the hair of the figures? Yes.
That’s hand-cut paper.
Lotte Reiniger - that’s her name, my friends - always loved the art beind the Chinese shadow puppetry, and after she heard a lecture by Paul Wegener (famous vor the early movies Der Golem and Der Student von Prag) about the possibilites of animated movies, she wanted to combine these two things.
And guys, how she combined it…
Most of the puppets and scenerey she made all by herself. Her friends set up a special table that was lighted from underneath, and in the later movies she would even change the colours of the background mid-scene to change the atmosphere. Above it was a camera, shooting photos of the scenes that she moved milimetre for milimetre for those 16 pictures per second she needed for her movie.
Which makes Die Abenteuer von Prinz Achmed not only the first animated feature-length movie, but also the first stop-motion movie.

NOT the oldest surviving film in history. The honor of creating an animated presentation goes to Charles-Emile Renaud with his invention of the Theatre Optique. He created the film Autour D’une Cabine(1894!!!!). Which was HAND PAINTED ONTO CANVAS STRIPS and then artfully hand turned on two reels while being projected for a mass audience. if you mean “film reels” then you’re STILL wrong. That honor goes to The Enchanted Drawing by by J.Stuart Blackton, made in 1900. This guy is considered to be the FATHER OF ANIMATION. OH AND ONE MORE THINGThe Honor of the VERY FIRST Feature Length Movie goes to ARGENTINA’S El Apostol made in 1917. I’ll give you that it’s lost, so you get a tie.Now the honor of First Stop Motion is a tricky one. Because it depends on your definition of Stop Motion. El Apostol was made with paper cut-outs. If you say that paper cut outs count as stop-motion, I can accept that. Paper is a grey area. There are numerous films that used puppets such as dead insects as seen in The Beautiful Lukanida (1912). The Adventures of Prince Achmen DOES deserve credit. It’s lovely! It’s cool! It’s owed its place in animation history as a film to be studied! It’s not any less amazing just because it doesn’t get to claim the things you say it does. An animated film earns its right not because of reaching some sort of benchmark, but because it creates a reality we accept through pure imagination and fantasy of the the artist. When we become lost in a film to the point that we forget that we are watching an artificial world, that is how we know that we are seeing something special.Love Prince Achmen because it does transport us. It tells a wonderful story in a beautiful world. It awes us with its gentle and delicate nature. as a note to Tumblr: Stop dragging “social justice” into everything. As a female, even I get irked when I see “WOMAN MAKE THING” as if something is only validated to you BECAUSE a under represented minority made it. If anyone knows anything about how women have been treated in filmmaking, it’s me. But harping on about sexism in the old days does us jackshit when we are still fighting the heavy stuff in OUR day and time. I sometimes agree with the idea of removing an author’s name so we can focus purely on the work. But the Animation History buff in me cries out against such an idea. Old habits die hard.
