Awesome behind the scenes of cel animation from Richard Williams

Rare behind the scenes footage from the making of The Thief and the Cobbler, Richard Williams' sadly unfinished animated masterpiece. Similar to the way pencil tests are shot in animation, the finished, colored cels were shot on PAL video first so that elements of the animation could be tested.

Some of these shots have not been seen previously, and we focus on details that are easy to miss in the final film. Some of this material will feature in The Thief and the Cobbler Recobbled Cut Mark 4.

Richard Williams is the legendary, triple Oscar winning animator of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Thief and the Cobbler, A Christmas Carol, and Raggedy Ann & Andy - A Musical Adventure.

Do it yourself animation series from TheThiefArchive channel. Sometimes the simplest things are hardest to execute.
