Just saw this on Facebook and had to post it immediately. Uli Meyer recently did this fantastic St. Trinian’s animation test in Ronald Searle’s beautiful drawing style.
On September 22nd, I presented a 25sec animation test featuring a St. Trinian’s schoolgirl to the creator of those classic British characters, Ronald Searle himself. Searle has had a few bad experiences when it comes to animation -his drawing style is extremely difficult to adapt and apart from a few short pieces of animation done by Ivor Woods in the 70s, he hasn’t been impressed by any attempts. Nevertheless, I thought I’d give this a go and am delirious to report that he loved it! He even commented that it was the best he’d seen since Ivor: a truly wonderful compliment.
