Terry Gilliam

Terry Gilliam, renowned director and animator, is most famous for his work with Monty Python’s Flying Circus, and his films such as Brazil, and Twelve Monkeys. Most recognisable is his animation style. Using cut out images to create short, sometimes elaborate animations. His method of movement is like that of a child playing with paper dolls, creating rapid movement rather than smooth transitions. His work is often surreal, and imaginative in how it interprets the desired message. Creating uncommon associations that also breed humour.
