It all started when…

​Max Fleischer was working as the Art Editor for Popular Science Magazine when, in 1915, he filed a patent application for a contraption he called the Rotoscope. Convinced that he could improve the jerky, jumping quality of early animated films, Max set out to create a mechanism by which animators could use live action film as a guide for their drawings, giving animated characters more fluid, life-like movement.

With the Rotoscope built and Dave, Max’s younger brother, playing the featured role of the clown… & after a year of painstaking work, a one minute film would change animation forever.

Years later, Fleischer would rotoscope Cab Calloway and more magic was created than we can comprehend. St. James Infirmary Blues. Old Man of the Mountain. Minnie the Moocher. and more!
