1899 - 1981
Lotte Reiniger had a very distinctive style in her work. Most famously known is an animation titled The Adventures of Prince Achmed made in 1926.
She was renowned for her style using almost completely silhouettes and vibrant colour to tell her stories. She would move these pieces of craft shaped into her characters and stop-motion photograph every little movement to create her work. A highly time consuming but intellectually rather satisfying method of animating.
