The Search Engine Google is showing a Doodle in few countries for the Lotte Reiniger’s 117th birthday
Charlotte "Lotte" Reiniger was a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation, anticipating Walt Disney by over ten years. Reiniger made over 40 films over her career, all using her invention.
Her most well known films are The Adventures of Prince Achmed and Papageno.

Lotte Reininger created visually stunning and fantastical films using black cardboard, scissors, and boundless imagination. Pre-dating Walt Disney by nearly a decade, Reiniger pioneered a style of #animation that relied on thousands of photos of paper cut-out silhouettes arranged to tell a story. It was a painstaking process that involved moving paper characters ever so slightly and snapping a photo of each movement
Nearly a century later, Reiniger continues to inspire animators and artists.
