Feature on Robert Breer in the Guardian

Another great story on the work of late Canyon Cinema animator/filmmaker Robert Breer:

“Breer was considered by some to be an anti-animator, as he often worked against the processes with which the craft is ordinarily associated. He explored movement between frames and within, and teased apart the lines between motion and stasis, working skilfully, sensitively and humorously, with variations in speed and repetition. In films such as Swiss Army Knife With Rats and Pigeons (1980), he combined many different styles of animation, as well as live action. Breer took a considered yet light-of-touch approach to his films, infusing them with life and spontaneity. These qualities contributed to their positive reception both in and outside his native US.”
