R.I.P. Richard Williams, Animator and Teacher


(Link to YouTube)
Richard Williams has died at age 86. He animated Pink Panther, produced a 1971 adaptation of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, and developed the animation for Who Framed Roger Rabbit? 


Perhaps his biggest contribution, though, was as a teacher. He had a huge base of knowledge, which he shared freely and cheerfully with a younger generation.

He learned the craft directly from Disney greats like Milt Kahl and Art Babbitt, as well as Warner Bros. talents like Ken Harris, who animated Bugs Bunny during the golden years, and later came to work with Williams in London.

All of that information is compiled in his excellent instructional book The Animator's Survival Kit. The book contains a wealth of drawings illustrating all the principles of animation and is considered the classic instructional text in that field.

What a wonderful video to share of this talented, delightful man. I loved the Pink Panther when it came out, and over the years it grew & grew with a life all its own. And now I will lay awake hearing... Du, da-du, da-du, da-du-da-du-da-du-daaaaa... duuuuuu...

Richard Williams came to visit Emily Carr College in Vancouver when I was a student and I was impressed with how he lived and breathed animation. A true master that will be missed.
