Subject: [Puptcrit] Reiniger and Dwiggins



While these two artists are being discussed in different threads, I find an intriging correlation between the two.  Both Lotte Reiniger and W.A. Dwiggins excelled in their chosen media.  These artists have been of incredible importance to my development as an artist through, to bring in yet a third thread here on pupcrit, documentation.  Lotte Reiniger's Prince Achmed is available on DVD now with a great documentary at the end.  Her book Shadow Theatres and Shadow Films in which she discusses her process in great detail, however, is quite rare.  So too is the beautiful book about Dwiggins' marionettes.  New technologies and techniques should be explored and utilized, but these documents will never cease to aid and inspire the artists of the day.  Let's keep the dialogue going and those books in circulation!
