a decade before the release of snow white, a woman with an obsession for paper cutting created the first full-length animated film using only her scissors, paper and back lighting. her name was lotte reineger and she is one of my heroes for her creativity, brilliance and patience. (it took three years to make and was the first of its kind.) i'm so glad it's available on dvd for stop-motion animation fanatics,
such as myself, to study and love.
