Unit 5 - Animation Timeline [WIP]

This site has a pretty exhaustive timeline: http://www.filmsite.org/animatedfilms.html



James Stuart Blackton is often referred to as the father of American animation with his stop motion animation Humourous Phases of Funny Faces in 1906.


The dawn of traditional animation began in 1914 with Windsor McCay who produced 'Getie the Dinosaur'. Although not the 'first' animation, it is the first to feature a character with an appealing personality.

"The little-known but pioneering, oldest-surviving feature-length animated film that can be verified (with silhouette animation techniques and color tinting) was released by German film-maker and avante-garde artist Lotte Reiniger, The Adventures of Prince Achmed (aka Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed) (1926, Germ.)" (Dirks, date unknown).

The market for the new instrument was there, as by 1887 there were 26,000 subscribers nationwide.

    Future
    Replacement of transoceanic coaxial cables by fibre-optic cables has continued through the 1990s. Advances in integrated-circuit technology and semiconductors have made it possible to design and market telephones that not only produce high-fidelity speech quality, but also offer a host of features such as pre-stored numbers, call forwarding, call waiting, and caller identification.
