Chuck Jones - Extremes and In-Betweens

Above is a wonderful documentary about the legendary Warner Bros animation director Chuck Jones. Chuck died a few years back but his influence on our medium is immense. His comic timing is hard to beat, and the characters he helped to create - Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd and Daffy Duck - still endure today.  Watch this video not just for a better understanding of the history of animation but also to see a great film-maker reveal his secrets. The sections where Chuck talks about how he timed out the jokes to the musical score are especially fascinating. Chuck Jones was a great animator, a great director, and a great comedian.
