John Korty’s “Twice Upon a Time”

John Korty’s 1983 release “Twice Upon a Time” broke ground with new techniques in stop motion animation. Korty had found inspiration in The Committee before, using them prominently in his film “Funnyman” (1967). For “Twice Upon a Time”, he used Committee actors Hamilton Camp, Jim Cranna, Julie Payne, and Nancy Fish (and lots of other Bay Area improv talent) to bring the world of the Rushers of Din to life. Here’s John in conversation with director Phil Lord and Cinefamily’s Alex McDonald at a Cinefamily screening last year.
