Fantasmagorie is a fascinating early animation short of chalk drawings
Emile Cohl's Fantasmagorie is perhaps one of the earliest film depictions of animation, in this case it's chalk drawings on a black board morphing from one scene to another without any real connection except for the way lines keep moving to any shape or form Cohl can think of. And it all happens in the space of two minutes! So, historically, this is one of the most fascinating animated shorts ever. Audiences might have been even more awestruck then than we would be now what with all the improvements that have happened in the nearly one hundred years since then. So for all of the above reasons, this short gets a 10.
