Did You Know?


Chuck Jones: I think you must learn - if you're in any filmmaking - you must respect the single frame. And there are twenty-four of those per second. If you don't respect that single frame you're in the same boat with a musician who does not respect an eighth note or a sixteenth note or a thirty-second note or whatever. You have to find the smallest unit and you have to love it and believe that one will make a difference. One frame to me will make the difference between whether the thing's funny or not.

a nice platform
27 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This tribute to Chuck Jones, the least threatening Warner Brothers animation genius around and no less brilliant for it, gets off on the wrong foot, meandering toward its subject with insipid BBC narration. But after five minutes the decks are cleared and Chuck is given a platform to reminisce, to expound, and to theorize. His words are rehearsed and calculated as well as insightful - the recent TCM doc "Chuck Jones: Memories," based on an interview he gave over a decade later, reiterates many of these anecdotes almost down to the phrase. The latter work is more artful and more intimate, but this one gets the edge - for his comments on the need to 'respect the single frame' which is just about the most essential quote on film-making I've ever heard from anybody, and for the generous nods to the team that worked behind, above and alongside him - to isolate Chuck Jones from this milieu is like writing a one-man show about Tommy Douglas, and there are gems galore to be found here.
