I’ve uploaded a set of still frames to my Flickr account from the 1982 French animated film Les Maîtres du temps, also known as Time Masters in the US. I had ran across this DVD in our collection at work and swiped it for a viewing as I wasn’t familiar with it. The film is directed by René Laloux (also responsible for 1973′s Fantastic Planet) with designs by Moebius. While it may not be a shining example of the most fluid or expertly constructed animation, the designs of Moebius and story really draw me to it.
While the DVD version I got a hold of is a 4:3 aspect ratio, there is apparently a remastered wide-screen version available as well. This is something I’ll have to get my hands on, at which point I guess I’ll have to update the Flickr set with wide-screen images!
