“Is there something in your character’s backstory you keep in mind when playing them? Maybe something you invented?” - Katie Lynch (x)
the weird thing about internet friends is that you don’t know how tall they are
straight people are ridiculous i’m still mad about this i mean i wrote a story that was LITERALLY about two girls falling in love and half the people in my creative writing class were still like “well i interpreted it as platonic” but nah man lol keep complaining about the way we make your precious straight characters fit into queer ships

The Adventures of Prince Achmen.
The oldest surviving animated film in history.
Nonono, you don’t understand how AWESOME this movie is
because it’s not done by a big production firm, or someone with a name as big as Walt Disney, no
the writer and “mind” behind this film was a WOMAN
yes, my dear tumblr peeps, the very first trick animator in the world was a young German woman who had an idea, and enough friends and time to make a feature-length animated film. And it took her three years
because the way this movie (and some shorter works she actually did before Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed) are done is really, really complex. You see those leaves, and the hair of the figures? Yes.
That’s hand-cut paper.
Lotte Reiniger - that’s her name, my friends - always loved the art beind the Chinese shadow puppetry, and after she heard a lecture by Paul Wegener (famous vor the early movies Der Golem and Der Student von Prag) about the possibilites of animated movies, she wanted to combine these two things.
And guys, how she combined it…
Most of the puppets and scenerey she made all by herself. Her friends set up a special table that was lighted from underneath, and in the later movies she would even change the colours of the background mid-scene to change the atmosphere. Above it was a camera, shooting photos of the scenes that she moved milimetre for milimetre for those 16 pictures per second she needed for her movie.
Which makes Die Abenteuer von Prinz Achmed not only the first animated feature-length movie, but also the first stop-motion movie.
as a side note, this film is fucking beautiful and you can watch THE ENTIRE FUCKING THING ON YOUTUBE RIGHT HERE AND I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS SO IMPORTANT and I also encourage everyone to stop reblogging this gif without the original accompanied text or other words that indicates what it is at all (it showed up on my dash three times before I saw this post and I hate everything), the artist deserves credit for their hard fucking work (in this case, three fucking years of it) so stop being little shits and just leave the damn source, and by the damn source I don’t mean your damn blog
“sherlock 1800s au”
There’s a fantastic fic writer who’s quite prolific in this area. Sixty stories already! I don’t know if they’re doing any more. Their username is ‘Arthur_Conan_Doyle’ but you have to google their stuff. They don’t put it on ff.net or AO3 or anything like that. Real awesome period piece type stuff too. They get all the little details right. It’s amazing.
I will still be laughing about this in my grave
