About Face (Chris James)

About Face (Chris James)
About Face is a short (4 minute) hand drawn animation featuring a series of nicely imaginative morphing sequences, with animals, faces, even caricatures of figures from history and pop culture, like Picasso and Dal&iacite; (above).

Written and drawn in 1977 by Chris James, with camera work by Julian Holdaway and music by Claude Jouvin, the short demonstrates that imagination, not CGI, is the necessary element for this kind of clever and amusing image dance.

  2. Well, of course. CGI just makes it easier to implement.
