The First True Animation…EVER.

In 1911, artist Winsor McCay directed a silent short film (below) that detailed the behind-the-scenes process of creating one of the most popular comic books of the time, “Little Nemo”. The film is mainly made up of Winsor drawing his iconic characters…but if you skip ahead to about 8:11, you can see what experts say is the first true animation ever created.
