Animation Through the Ages

This is a fun little trip back through time showing different animation effects used in the movies over the past century. From the YouTube user BenGraphics, it was originally used as a lecture introduction. It is slightly misleading in that the explosion of the Death Star is not from the original 1977 version, but from one of the "more is better" later re-releases (raspberry insert: sorry George, the original film was charming and the effects enhanced the story, but then you went to the dark side), still, each of the effects was deemed remarkable in their time. I am, however, disappointed at the staggering lack of Wallace and Gromit. Click through to see the list of all the films in the clip. (PS: better watch it quick, before the Blue Man Group has it taken down for copyright infringement.)
