The Do-It-Yourself Film Animation Show (1974)

Director: Anna Jackson

Starring: Bob Godfrey, Bruce Lacey, Terry Gilliam

More info: IMDb

Plot: Terry Gilliam demonstrates how to make animated films using cut-outs.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again?  Yes.

This is super neat.  Fans of animation or Monty Python should check this out.  It's on YouTube and it's fifteen minutes so there's no excuse.  This is one episode from a short-lived British TV series about the different aspects of animation.  Terry Gilliam is the guest on this episode about table-top and cut-outs.  He takes you through each step, in detail, on how he made those classic animation for MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS (1969).  Fans of Python will recognize a lot of what he shows.  It's super-fun and informative.  I dig hearing Gilliam talk about stuff because he's so passionate, smart and knowledgeable.  Someday I'm going to check out the rest of the episodes.  I hope there as interesting and fun as this one.
