Hey, a new post!
I decided I might as well continue this blog, just as a record of my animation research. You know, to help me deal with my obsession. It's not really going to be a place to showcase my own animation for the time being, mainly because I'm busy with college and all the post-high school crap. I could come up with more excuses... my animation stand is covered in DVDs... my camera sucks.
Anyway, I wanted to post about one of my new favorite animators, Milton Knight. He's worked for Ralph Bakshi, as well as DiC. Now, up until now, I've disregarded everything made by DiC, with the exception of John K's New Adventures of Beany and Cecil. Well, I was doing some research on Jim Tyer, and somehow I stumble upon this guy named Milton Knight.
The guy has worked on the pilot for The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, which doesn't sound impressive at first, until you see what he did with it. Things worth noting: 1) Gary Owen's voice can be heard (voice of Space Ghost and Powdered Toast Man). 2) Ed Love, who worked on Tex Avery's Swing Shift Cinderella, also worked on this show. My mind has been blown!
It's very fitting that he ended up directing episodes of The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat.
Anyway, I think this guy is great.
