I'm Gaby and at 22, I exceed the supposed limitations of sass. I reside in Florida; land of sunshine, rain, and the decaying scent of old people. I like a variety of things ranging from art and science to old Hollywood to comedy and Florence + the Machine. I have recently graduated Flagler College with my BFA in Fine Arts with minors in illustration and environmental science.
all my bones began to shake, my eyes flew open.

Clark Gable and Ava Gardner during the filming of Lone Star (1952)

Clark Gable and Ava Gardner during the filming of Lone Star (1952)

"I spent a lot of time wondering if it would matter if I died."
"In the macro sense, no. You’re one cheerio in the bulk box full of life. But you fucking tickle me, so I think it would matter."

Katniss, are you here to fight with us?

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?

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.
