Cell animation involves drawing each frame of an animation by hand on acetate (originally rice paper) over a static background, or ‘cell’. 24 cells are needed for one second of animation. The advantage is that less drawings are required, because the cells can be used again. Cell animation was invented in America at the beginning of the 20th century. Animated cartoons had to be made quickly, thanks to the successes of Walt Disney. To save time, this technique was devised, where moving parts and non-moving parts of the drawing are separated from each other. The animation is first drawn in pencil (line drawing) and then transferred to a clear transparent sheet (cell). The transparency allows placing multiple layers on top of each other. The backgrounds are always visible and do not need to be redrawn each time, which is a big time saver.

This lot: beautiful, original film cell “Grootgrut”. This cell was created by Marten Toonder Studios and was actually used for the film “Als je begrijpt wat ik bedoel”. Great piece of animation art.
