Pink Panther Teaser

Much of Richard Williams' animation work, as he'll tell you himself, isn't available to buy and enjoy like most of today's top animators. A lot of his more experimental work was done on the commercials he worked on, and he's said himself his best work is in Thief and the Cobbler. I've already posted what I've found on YouTube, but that site isn't the only source on the internet.

I've been able to find over an hour and a half worth of his work, a lot of which I'll begin sharing with you shortly. In order to maintain the quality the files sizes will be large. I've also taken on the burden of converting the files to Quicktime for frame by framing fun. I'll be hosting these files myself for all to enjoy. Here's a teaser; some fantastic animation for the introduction to a Pink Panther movie. I've yet to see any of the Pink Panther films (but I do plan to) so I can't tell you which movie this is from.

Thank you ! Great stuff you're posting here , Dan.

Much appreciated.

All of this wonderful work needs to be spread around and SEEN .

I wish that there were better copies of Dick's commercial reels available, and Eric Goldberg's commercial reels, Purdum's, Klacto's, etc. There was quite an animation renaissance in London in the 70's and 80's (due in large part to Mr. Williams pushing the envelope) .

Yeah-good effort Dan. The PANTHER films are HILARIOUS! Grew up with them on TV constantly in the UK & of course Williams' commercials.
