Paint-on-Glass Animation

I’ve been digging through various animation processes lately, and have unearthed some exquisite examples of paint-on-glass animation by Russian animator Aleksandr Petrov.

The first film is ‘Mermaid’, Русалка (Rusalka) after Alexander Pushkin’s poem. It is in Russian.

The following clips are the artist’s take on Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. Unfortunately, the film is in two parts here, and not of the quality deserving the artist’s effort, but it’s still quite stunning. This version is in English, however there are other higher quality clips on youtube that are not, should one wish to switch languages.

Deadlines always seem to bring out my stranger side [which is sometimes also my better side, but not always]. After spending a good portion of the day yesterday getting absolutely filthy and exhausted from prepping masonite panels for painting, I decided I needed to see people die. It was that, or a shooting spree in suburbia. This is not unusual for me. Of course, having a deadline to meet, I couldn’t spare the time that incarceration would involve, so I opted for the next best thing — AHHHNOLD!
