Color silhouette stop-motion
16 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few silhouette movies that she made with color backgrounds, but she always preferred black-and-white animated movies. Pieces of this can be seen during the documentary "Lotte Reininger: Homage to the Inventor of the Silhouette Film" by Katja Raganelli, which can be seen on "The Adventures of Prince Achmed" DVD. "Prince Achmed" was the first full-length animated film, made in 1926. Most of her work qualifies as stop-motion, as each character in her movies was photographed one frame at a time and strung together later. These are absolutely amazing pieces and I highly recommend renting or buying the "Achmed" DVD. An amazing, relatively unknown stage of early animation and this woman filmmaker is an inspiration.
