ivanLast night I was reading about 1950′s animation in Cartoon Modern and it mentioned some of the amazing modern animators coming out of Europe that were vastly different than the standard 19th century “Disney” style that was so prevalent in the US. One such animator was Ivan Ivanov-Vano whom collaborated with the likes of Shostakovich and Stravinsky. Take a moment today to watch Seasons by Ivan Ivanov-Vano , while it wasn’t produced in the 50′s and it isn’t the exact video I was looking for with the Shostakovich score, it’s still absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy!
