    In addition to the seminal comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, Winsor McCay was an early pioneer of animation, producing 10 animated animated shorts in the silent era and developing many of the techniques crucial to the art form. I watched the entire collection, though three are fragmentary (I'd especially have liked to see The Centaurs finished). He starts off with a bang in 1911, dramatizing in live action his pitch to investors (he often pulls a kind of behind the scenes element), before animating his Nemo characters. And it's not simple, easy animation either! Hand-colored, with complicated rotations, perspectives and smooth movement and morphing. Not to say it's downhill from there because McCay keeps innovating, but an intriguing look at early film-making, with a strong sense of craft and some wonderful surreal images. 7 months ago
