Every Frame a Painting

For all animators and especially character designers, this enlightening short film by Tony Zhou features some of Chuck Jones’ most memorable moments and interview footage with Charles himself provides a unique insight into the mind of perhaps the worlds’ finest cartoon director. “If you want to make great films, be inspired by the world around you & give your characters a well defined motivation”. Great tips from the master himself. Highly recommended 8 minutes worth of your day and take yourself back to those magical moments spent watching Bugs, Daffy, Porky, The Roadrunner and of course his inimitable nemesis Wiley Coyote.

The latest video essay from notable movie dissector Tony Zhou (“Every Frame a Painting”) does an excellent job of breaking down the artistry of director and animator Chuck Jones, whose career with Warner Bros. spanned nearly 30 years. He focuses on the very detailed and intense process behind Jones’ creation of characters (their individual desires, for instance) and how they evolved over time. He also smartly answers a perfectly reasonable question: How did Jones and his cohort keep their recurring cartoons from being too formulaic or repetitive? By the video’s end, you’ll no doubt want to revisit some of those classic shorts, and when you do, you’ll look at them through an entirely new lens
