Plus: animation news.
A wonderful introduction to an unappreciated genius - looking forward to gobbling up “Junko”! Where did you find the book on Kubal, though? I’ve been doing a wee trek for it online to no avail. It’s in Slovak but I’ll still want to have it in my library to drool over…
Thank you very much for this interesting piece of work. I was in particular caught by the Kubal process and the personal and fast production aspect of it. // overall your newsletters are dense & varied and I learn a lot. Thank you. This Sunday morning, I have been scrolling to see whether you had written a special paper on cut out animation. Maybe you have but I did not find it. I even asked chatGPT of this topic, but the granularity of this knowledge can only be dealt by animation specialists like your selves. chatGPT pointed out some landmark production but misses the pearls. No hurry, nor worries. Take care and have a great Sunday. Karim from Paris
could you tell about how do you curate all that you would share with your audience, and the ability to write well also any suggestion on trying to be a better write to be able to convey an idea very broad question but if have some insights to it, it was great to go through your newsletter. The animated movie is on TBW hopefully by the end of the day will watch it.
The film wasn’t boring and I could see only one mistake.
Nice piece, Kubal is as idiosyncratically fascinating as his work. There's a YouTube upload in much better quality than the one you guys posted here, and the channel also features many of the Slovak animator's films as well as interviews and documentaries. Despite lacking subtitles, it felt like something worth pointing out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uIcE69JdCE
