High Tech From the Past

Over at Pissed’s, a technological blast from the past: an old Popular Science newsreel describing the process needed to create a single Popeye the Sailor cartoon episode.

What I find most fascinating is the incredible level of effort that went in to creation of one eight minute cartoon. The number of people, specialized equipment, space — amazing.

And now, single, dedicated person with a suitable skillset and a Mac can do the same thing from the comfort of an easy chair in their own living room.
