STERNchen 2

DCF 1.0

in the fifties and sixties the german magazine STERN contained an eight page smaller magazine STERNchen for the younger readers. of course I collected them all, already in these early years I was interested in the illustrations, created by the best in german illustration ( most of them at the beginning of their career ), like LORIOT and BUSCH, LANGE and KOHLSAAT. many years later I destroyed the precious collectors magazines, cutting out the illustrations. they were less heavy during my numerous moves. here now the first part of the collection, in my opinion some amazing pieces of illustration-art in their stylistic variety.

amblimation balto documentary 1994 part 1

27 03 2015

anim.hist

the AMBLIMATION studio in london-acton town, jan.1994, shortly after the disaster earthquake in northridge, L.A.

some impressions of the background department, located separate on the 1.floor, because of the better light conditions,

fun after work in the pub next door. most of us were hanging out there after work several times a week.

studio party after successful work, STEVE HICKNER, producer, giving a speech.

more BALTO BG’s, most of them painted in oil. I never understood, why that was never used in the promotion of the film. at least it was the only film next to BAMBI where the backgrounds were nearly entirely painted in oil.

verwitterte melodie 1942

25 03 2015

anim.hist

I taped this version of VERWITTERTE MELODIE ( weather-beaten melody ) in the late 70s when it was shown in german television and copied it over and over to all the latest tape versions. for me it is a treasure, because not even hans fiescherkoesen’s son had a good copy of his fathers’s film. he told me when I met him sometime in the mid 80s in his bad godesberg melem ( near bonn ) studio. the original negative of this jewel is still probably somewhere in prague, I hope it is stored safe. in an earlier post I have written about this short, produced 1942 in the middle of WW2 in nazi germany. big parts were animated in prague by JIRI BRDECKA, HORST VON MOELLENDORFF received story credit, but it is not clear how much he contributed. the overall direction was in the hands of HANS FISCHERKOESEN. his son told me he could still remember a huge studio space filled with flowers and plants, cut out of thin wood, for the opening circling camera move. GOEBBELS, in charge of propaganda and film in the 3.reich, had ordered that german animation should rival disney. he was especially a big fan of SNOW WHITE and the disney feature was analyzed by all german studios at that time. in a berlin animation studio even a huge multiplane camera was constructed to come up with similar effects disney had done in SNOW WHITE.
