Kick in the pants from Ralph Bakshi

Posted 7 years ago by Evan Tishuk

Below is a short video of Ralph Bakshi discussing entrepreneurial animating during tough times: He punches Disney in the groin for poisoning a generation of animation. Chastises young animators today for being "lethargic, uninspired, terrified." Instructs whippersnappers to get out there, band together, starve a little and create something new. Great stuff. (via: Fanboy)

Bakshi is the creator of such notable films as Fritz the Cat, Wizards, Lord of the Rings (animated version) and Cool World. Bakshi makes reference to Coonskin a couple times in the above video. It was produced in 1975 and was notable for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was banned pretty much everywhere for its racial themes. It also innovatively melded live action, photography, and stylized animation.
