A little history here. This old school wax sliced animation combined with puppetry is probably the first example of rudimentary strata cut. I don’t know a lot about this clip, but WATLER RUTMAN worked with Oskar Fischenger, and was likely the artist who should be credited with this wax slice moment. This was part of a larger movie made by Lotte Reiniger in Germany … and was given to me by one of the directors of the Anima Mundi Festival in Brazil last year, the very kind Marcos Magalhaes.
