  • Help in describing and finding this specific style

    Hi All,
    Brand new to the forum so please be kind. I looked up graphic design forums and this seems to be the biggest and best, so hopefully I can find what I'm looking for.

    I'm after a specific style of graphic design, and also any animation.
    I thought it was "puppet theatre" but even google images comes up with a different style and not what I'm after.

    Please see this youtube clip to get a better understanding. It's from the film 'The Adventures of Baron Munchausen'.

    I'm hoping to find more examples of work like this if anyone knows any, and find out if there's a particular name for this style.

    This is another example. It looks more childish that what I'm after, but I guess it's similar:

    Style:
    (these are just some examples off the top off my head)
    Traditional canival type puppet theatre.
    Everything looks 2D and are on separate layers. Waves for example are a piece of cardboard covering the entire width of the stage and move in a looped action, with a different "piece" of wave behind it moving in alternating looped patterns. It provides the user with some depth, even though it's clearly 2D waves.
    Clouds hang from string from the roof.
    There are different layers of 2D clouds (like the waves) behind the hanging clouds to give more depth.
    The sun might be on a long stick or rod, and moves in the way a clock hand moves.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to GDF Brael

    The first video is of a stage production, no puppets in that one. The "waves" are huge painted panels that are mechanized. No computer animation or "layers" are being utilized. The second is a animated drawn illustration, and quite different from your first link, graphically. So I'm not sure what you are asking exactly.

      Oops sorry. Should have made myself more clear in that I understand the video is an actual stage production and not animation, but I've seen the odd design piece as well as flash-esque animation that takes the real-life stage or puppet theatre idea (like the youtube clip) and turns it into a, well, 2D design/animation piece.
      The video is just an example of the style in, I guess, traditional real life theatres.

      I don't think it would be too difficult to create mind you, I'm just hoping there is a name that describes the actual style. I want to find other examples of it.

          Hmm, kind of reminds me of Of Monsters and Men's "Little Talks" video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghb6eDopW8I

          Are you thinking like Cutout or Papercutting? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cutout_animation - there are some links to animated videos.
