More Karel Zeman

Here are some highlights from “Diabolica Inventions” (1958) , a film Zeman did to look like moving woodcuts. A feature film “Fantastic World of Jules Verne” (1961) employees the same technique.

very Steampunk.

But how on earth was it done in 1958? I see real shadows moving on those drawn surfaces. It's so like the Melies Brothers' 'From the Earth to the Moon'.

I’m glad you asked, now it gives me reason to post a follow up piece on how Zeman made his films. I’ll get to it soon. Thanks for looking.
