SEYMOUR, IZZY, and 'THE BIBLE' ...post 2

Here’s the second posting with another selection of pages from ‘The Standard Production Reference,’ often referred to as ‘The Bible.’ The previous post on this site talks about the history behind this document and also includes scans of some pages. The scope of this document reflects how complex the making of animated films had become, and the broad knowledge then required of animators.

This has a lot of technical information about how things were done…. the details of which may put some to sleep. This post is basically for the many fans who understand and crave these kinds of insights into early film production. But stay tuned…coming soon… posts of a more popular nature!
