Twice Upon a Time

Comments by: Rating: 10 out of 10 stars Posted: January 12, 2005

George Lucas and Korty create a new animation styl

Korty lives in west Marin County north of SF and got the support of George Lucas (whose Skywalker Ranch is nearby) to experiment in an animation technique called "lumage" which consists of cel painting, torn paper, some translucent layers and a very creative imagination. This delightful fable about nightmares shares a common sensibility with Jeunet's "City of Lost Children" as a darkly comic look at the world of childhood dreams and not-so-superheroes. It's eminently watchable by adults, who might actually enjoy the wordplay even more than kids. It's a satire as much as a plot, echoing everything from Beany and Cecil (Bob Clampett) to Rocky and Bullwinkle (Jay Ward) in it's skewering of the time-honored quest to prevent great evil from befalling the world. Ralph the all-purpose animal (our hero) seems to be voiced by the same actor who voices the animated Garfield, but try not to let this distract you from the satire and beautiful visuals awaiting you. I'm not sure if it's in print, I bought it on Laser (Warner 20012) but still haven't seen it on DVD; there was a VHS release as well back around 1984.
