"Creation" footage video
The surviving footage for Willis O'Brien's "Creation" is now online. The
picture quality is rather poor here in this transfer, but you can get a
of the enormous improvements made since "The Lost World" in both animation
and sets. The animation in the silent "The Lost World" was shot at 16 frames
per second. Sound had to be shot at about 25 frames per second which also
greatly enhanced the "resolution" of the animation (and also the work load of
animators). Sorry to say the "hero" animation model's shots were excised and
cut into the "King Kong" test reel. That film has been lost, unfortunately.
It was Marcel Delgado's finest dinosaur model. DV PS The 1917 date is
incorrect. 1931 is closer to it.
