To that approach, which pointedly emphasizes the element of selffiguration that Crafton has identified as central to early animation, McCay added an emphatic spatial sense. For he generally drew in what Michael Barrier describes as “an elaborate illustration style” (33), one that had been honed in his artist-reporter background at the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune and his early print cartoons for the New York Herald. That style clearly ill suited the pace and procedures of an industrial animated cartoon production—which helps explain his relatively short career as a film animator—and at fi rst glance it seems far removed from the world of the avant-garde, Yet as Leonard Maltin notes, McCay’s films also seem to offer “a continuous parade of movement, metamorphosis, and exaggeration” (Of Mice 3), precisely the sort of features that would quickly become synonymous with the new animated cartoon and its potentially subversive nature.
This branch of animation, generally known as stopmotion and encompassing such practices as object animation, puppet animation, Claymation, and so on, staked out its own long line of development, one that includes, among others, the figure animation of the former conventional cartoonist Charles Bowers in the 1930s, George Pal’s Puppetoon shorts of the 1930s and 1940s, Art Clokey’s Claymation Gumby shorts, Aardman Animations’ Wallace and Gromit fi lms, Tim Burton’s stop-motion features, such as The Nightmare before Christmas (1993) and Corpse Bride (2005), the experimental work of the Brothers Quay, the puppet films of the Czech animator Jiří Trnka, as well as the stop-motion/live-action combinations created by the two masters of this form, Willis O’Brien and Ray Harryhausen.
John Belton nicely diagnoses the issue in his commentary on the advertising for many 3-D films; as he explains, “Instead of audiences’ entering into the world depicted on the screen, the space on screen was represented . . as invading that of the audience” (189–90)—which is precisely the point emphasized in the guidebook description of In Tune with Tomorrow. Indeed, in their use of 3-D, these films typically never so much open up the space of the cinematic image as they do our own space, while also suggesting that this space, including as it does our spectator position, might prove to be in some way unstable or vulnerable to intrusion.
