    Description

    Forbidden Planet (MGM, 1956). Signed Animation Art (12.5" X 30"). Based on William Shakespeare's The Tempest, this is one of the top classic science fiction films of all time. The popularity and success of this film is due in large part to its elaborate props and groundbreaking special effects. Producer Dore Schary's incredible budget of $1.9 million allowed for the creation of Robby the Robot and the collaboration of Disney animators Josh Meador and Bob Trochim in bringing to life the Monster from the Id. Initially invisible, this monster called for unique effects. Rather than use traditional animation techniques, artists drew the monster on animation paper in graphite. Each frame was then shot in both positive and negative, with high contrast film. The result is only seen when the monster hits the electrical fence or is struck by the crew's blaster fire. It is an eerie and seamless effect. To see the Monster from the Id as a detailed graphite drawing is a rare treat. The image size is 9" X 10 ". The paper has chips, small tears along the edges, corner folds, and a few wrinkles. The drawing is not affected, and is signed by animation artist Bob Trochim. Fine.
