You know what might look better on your nose?


There was an abridged version on Youtube, long ago, that made everyone do funny noises. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? It was probably complete pants, but the guy making Gandalf hum purposefully while charging the camera is burnt into my memories.

So why wasn't there a sequel? Apparently the movie took in 30 mil at the box office and cost 4 to make which sounds pretty good for the late 70s.

Bakshi has said it was because of a lack of funding. He struggled to secure the cash to make movies basically his entire life. Partially cause animation for adults wasn't really A Thing in the way it is now, with only a handful of studios believing it worthwhile, and the scene dominated by Disney, partially because it kinda seems like Bakshi is an "interesting" person to work with. The Rankin Bass people made a sort-of-sequel in 1980 that roughly picked up where he left off

The Rankin Bass Return of the King has the baller Orc marching song and the Witch King of Angmar is played by Skeletor.

the studio made 26 million, not Bakshi. which just tells the studio that jerking him around and rushing him to release an unfinished movie on a tighter budget than promised is a winning formula, which is not a precedent that appealed to Bakshi.

Studios screw creators p often and bakshi famously got absolutely ruined by almost every studio he worked for, one of the reason he quit doing stuff till Kickstarter let him self-fund there

IIRC Bakshi worked for Disney a long time ago and honed a lot of his skill there before he got sick of it (kinda like Don Bluth and others). He certainly was an unusual guy from the little things you hear about him. In the Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat he apparently went around NYC with a tape recorder and a bottle of scotch and just had randos he met read for the dialogue.

I also read something a while ago where he was talking about all the new technology coming out (this was in the mid-aughts) and him marveling that he could now animate things on his own PC that would have taken many people and many days before. His words: "Fuckin' incredible!"

Thank you for this thread. I miss the old animation styles. As a kid, I remember enjoying how they could be both beautiful and unsettling (e.g. The Last Unicorn).

Perpetuating the stereotype since 1978.

When my kid and I went to see the first installment of Jacksonís The Hobbit, we started singing the songs from the Rankin-Bass version at the appropriate times. We got a lot of middle-agers to sing along, but a bunch of crabby old farts complained to the manager, and he said heíd kick us out if we didnít stop. New Hampshireís a total buzzkill, but thatís another thread for another time.

With rotoscoping do they film all of the scenes with real actors and then trace over it? Thatís what Wikipedia tells me but that seems like a crazy way to make everything just cost twice as much (real life actors and then animators).

Does it produce a different effect than just animating it from the outset?

Animation is loving expensive, to the point that it's usually cheaper to hire actors and then trace over the live footage than it is to pay animators to draw everything from scratch (which takes longer than tracing.)

It does also produce a very distinct effect, but that's usually thought of as a disadvantage because it can look very weird and off-putting if it's not done well.
