Richard Purdum - Tate Gallery Liverpool , Modern Art

Amazing animated commercial for the Tate Gallery Liverpool, by Richard Purdum. (from 1988)

The image in the video (from VHS tape) is a bit soft and the colors not as vivid as the original, but this YouTube video is the only version of this I could find online.

If you want to see what it actually looked like go to Hans Bacher's blog to see frame grabs from a good print:

Eric Goldberg talk- AAU Fall Animation Festival 2008

Each Fall the Academy of Art University Animation Department has a Fall Animation Festival. In 2008 the special guest speaker was master animator Eric Goldberg who regaled the assembled students with a recounting of his brilliant career in animation (ongoing) with film clips accompanying his many charming anecdotes about his adventures in animation.

Click on the link to view Eric's presentation.

(once you get to the "Industry on Campus" site , click on the link to "Industry on Campus: Eric Goldberg") .

I hope you enjoy watching this presentation as much as I did.

If you're an animation student at Academy of Art University (or anywhere else) and you don't yet own a copy of Eric's wonderful book "Character Animation Crash Course" then GET IT . (I mean it : go order it right now. Hop to it !)
