Talk overview

Starting with history/clips from Harry Hoyt's 1925 Feature-adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's - 'The Lost World', moving onto how Orson Welles reportedly got many of his creative ideas for Citizen-Kane from Walt-Disney's Pinnochio (with a short period devoted to the process of Cell-animation) leading up to the 1980'-1990's advancements of the technique into 'Go-Motion' and 'Mo-Motion' and how the whole ethos of 'Stop-Frame' formed so much of today's C.G.I tool, as well as Cinema overall.
