The Old Man and the Sea - Animated


In 1999, Aleksandr Petrov won the Academy Award for Short Film (among other awards) for a film that follows the plot line of Ernest Hemingway’s classic novella, The Old Man and the Sea (1952). Petrov’s technique involves painting pastels on glass, and he and his son painted a total of 29,000 images. Rather incredible.



Awesome!
