The Cameraman's Revenge

1912
Comedy, Animation
Short Film
12m
A bored, married suburbanite journeys to the city and carries on an affair with a nightclub dancer. He treats one of the dancer's other suitors rather roughly, who turns out to be a cameraman. Complications ensue. This was one of Starewicz's first animated films, and stars very realistic animated beetles.

Fatal flaw in the direction cost it a good 10 points: the Grasshopper did not film Mr Beetle from that direction. You were so close to perfection, Starewicz. So close.

Charming and clever film involving domestic troubles between animated insects. Quality of the print aside, the animation holds up extremely well, and is mighty impressive for 1912.

I look at early Pixar shorts as first experiments with a new technology, and then I look at this, an early experiment with stop-motion animation made about three quarters of a century earlier. It is in terms of the utilization of a new form at the service of actually substantial content (rather than inane kitsch), that Wladyslaw Starewicz's The Cameraman's Revenge is spectacularly superior. But it is also visually prettier.

Like with other certain silent films, there either needs to be more dialogue or, better yet, a more successful telling of the story through images and sound. Not to say that this film isn't entirely unsuccessful (the cinematography is quite important with this one), it's just that it's quite difficult to show emotions when your actors are actually dead insects.
