Animation Timeline: Entry 10 - King Kong (1933)

Willis O'Brien is back with his most famous stop motion creation King Kong. King Kong was created in 1933 and features one of the most known monsters of all time, King Kong, the great ape and 'eighth wonder of the world'.

King Kong featured the work of Willis O'Brien as the special effects artist and was world renowned for its high quality animation. O'Brien created the entire movement of the great ape and the dinosaurs throughout the film using small sized models and the technique of stop motion animation. This animation was then applied to live action footage, which worked well and had a high amount of quality for the time the film and animation was created.
