There’s not much to view yet, but his current project is being animated as realistically as possible –




There has been much hilarity found in freeze-framing Disney films. Another thing largely lost in CG.


It’s not really a technique that’s common in the industry. In fact it’s a technique that nearly bankrupted the it’s pioneer on several occasions.


I can’t believe that an animated GIF taken from a perfectly looped animation wasn’t properly looped. Disappointing.


I remember watching that animation of A Christmas Carol when I was a kid and being blown away by the drawings. If you like animation that is well worth finding and watching.


giphy which i use only allows clipping by 1/10th of a second, not by frame. other suggestions welcome.


Hi Andrea. The animation has a perfect loop of exactly 1 second. You can start anywhere after the dachshund is in its place (and at least one second before the title appears). So, even if Giphy only allows clipping by 1/10th of a second, it works perfectly for this particular loop. See my settings below, I set the duration to 1.0 seconds, starting at 00:07.

The resulting GIF is here, it is a perfect loop:
