Mike Jittlov – The Wizard Of Speed And Time

Born in Los Angeles, Jittlov became a math-language major at UCLA. Jittlov took an animation course to satisfy his art requirement. He made a super-8 film, The Leap, enlarged to 16mm to participate in film festivals in the early 70s. Jittlov entered a 16mm film made for his UCLA class, Good Grief, into Academy Awards competition. That short made it to the professional finals for nomination, the first of several of his short films to do so. Afterwards, Jittlov bought his own 16mm movie camera, designed his own multiplane animation system for $200, and began his career.

Some of his other original film shorts, including The Interview, Swing Shift, Animato, and Time Tripper (released separately and as a collection called Animato) won many top awards and repeat film festival screenings, bringing him to the attention of The Walt Disney Studio. In 1978, Jittlov co-starred on Disney’s two-hour TV extravaganza, Mickey’s 50th, with the short film Mouse Mania, creating and animating the first stop-motion Mickey Mouse, along with 1,000 other Disney toys marching around a psychiatrist’s office. The short is now featured on the Disney DVD Mickey Mouse in Living Color, Volume Two. Since Disney did not allow usually individual creators to receive credit on their television productions (preferring a generic thanks to “the many Disney animators who made this possible”) Mike put his and partner Deven Cheregino’s name on the toys in the final production number, where they couldn’t be edited out. In late 1979, he co-starred again on Disney’s Major Effects television special – this time introducing the world to the 500 mph Green “Wizard of Speed and Time” via the short film version. With an improved soundtrack, the short was released to 16mm film collectors in 1980, along with four of his other short films.

Jittlov is best known for his feature movie The Wizard of Speed and Time, which he directed and starred in. The movie did poorly in theatres but has established a cult following since its release on videotape and laserdisk.

The Brothers Quay – Dark Atmospheric Surreal Stop Motion Animation From Identical Twins

I first saw Street of Crocodiles back in the late 80’s, and it’s hauntin’ images profoundly affected me. The Quay brothers are stop motion sorcerers who splendidly invoke the sensations of dream space and texture.

Stephen and Timothy Quay (born June 17, 1947 in Norristown, Pennsylvania) are American identical twin brothers better known as the Brothers Quay or Quay Brothers. They are influential stop-motion animators.

Most of their animation films feature puppets made of doll parts and other organic and inorganic materials, often partially disassembled, in a dark, moody atmosphere. Perhaps their best known work is Street of Crocodiles, based on the short novel of the same name by the Polish author and artist Bruno Schulz. This short film was selected by director and animator Terry Gilliam as one of the ten best animated films of all time, and critic Jonathan Romney included it on his list of the ten best films in any medium (for Sight and Sound’s 2002 critics’ poll). They have made two feature-length live action films: Institute Benjamenta, or This Dream People Call Human Life and The Piano Tuner Of Earthquakes. They also directed an animated sequence in the film Frida.

This was one of my favorite Horror/Sci-Fi films as a kid.

How can you not love the awesome stop-motion animated brain creatures?!
