Hot Air Aces

- My Popeye posting yesterday remided me of a storyboard drawing I.Klein gave me that
I haven’t posted. It’s a nice drawing from a post-War short, and I thought it worth sharing.
I believe the drawing comes from Hot Air Aces (1949) and was directed by Izzy Sparber.

In today’s NY Times, there’s an article about the future of cinema and the inevitablitiy of 3D. Much is made of the recent announcement that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson would be making a realistic trilogy of 3D films starring Tin Tin. Motion Capture takes them into this realistic/cartoon world.

Unfortunately, real cinema is no longer real, and cartoon cinema is no longer cartoon.

    Man…what a shame! It would be so wonderful to see them put their resources toward making a beautiful, well-done, and authentic animation…

    I would LOVE to see some of the classics revived…revived, not revamped.
