Example text

Adobe walls, cactus, strange growths, are the beginning; pure expressionism is the end. His landscape changes with each picture, always in fantasy. 21 From the outset, animation has provided a natural space in which to bring distorted and metamorphic images to life (consider, for example, J. Stuart Blackton’s Humorous Phases of Funny Faces [1906] and Émile Cohl’s Fantasmagorie [1908]). It is unsurprising, then, that comic strips, which readily displayed the qualities described by Seldes, should have found a natural second home within animation.

In both Robert M. W. Griffith: His Life and Work (1985)34 and David A. W. W. Griffith (1984)37 credit a sketch artist called Charles Baker. 38 This factual inconsistency, while editorially careless and perhaps trivial, captures well the marginal status enjoyed by the storyboard artist, if not the storyboard, during American cinema’s early decades.
