Terry Gilliam on animation and modern film making

Monty Python were, and are, funny. Terry Gilliam is, amongst other things, the man behind the animations in Monty Python movies… and possibly the inspiration for the animation style of South Park. I have no idea if that’s true – but the method he uses here is a bit like the method they use, only with slightly more detailed paper.

Here, an older, wizened, Terry Gilliam, takes a shot at Hollywood movie making, with Steven Spielberg in his sights.

He thinks happy endings are overrated, and stories should be real.

Here he talks about his approach to making movies.

Interesting stuff.
