Animation Cel - A cel (short for celluloid) is a blank clear
plastic sheet used by the studio artist to paint an animated character
or object based on the animator's original pencil drawing. The cels
are then placed over a background and photographed in sequence to produce
an illusion of life in the completed film or cartoon short. Every cel
is different but this does not mean that every cel is unique. Often
multiple copies of a cel were created by the Inkers as colour models
in order to advance their technique and skills.
12 Field Cel - This refers to the size of the area
on the artwork which falls within the sight of the camera. Measuring
approximately 10.5" x 12.5" this is the standard size for
cels, backgrounds and drawings.
Field Cel - This refers to the size of the area on the artwork
which falls within the sight of the camera. Measuring approximately
12.5" x 16.5" this is the standard size for cels, backgrounds
Production Cel - Any cel created for the production
of an animated film, commercial or cartoon short. This does not necessarily
mean that the piece appears in the film. Model cels and preliminary
art are all production artwork.
Limited Edition Cel - A non production hand painted
cel created for sale to the collectors market. It is produced in fixed
limited quantities and is easily identified by a fraction (150/500)
in the lower right hand corner. They were not used in films or cartoon
shorts, and the original intent was to recreate the original production
cels. Nowadays many studios release new images not based on production
(Serigraph) - A non production cel created by means of a printing
process similar to silk screening. No work is done by hand, therefore
no painting or inking is involved. They are often produced in limited
quantities of 300 - 5000, and they are marketed as a low cost alternative
to production and limited edition cels.
Drawing - A drawing on paper in pencil, sometimes coloured
which is created by a studio artist of an animated character or object
for which the cels are later created.
Background - A background created for use in a production of
an animated film. It must be noted that a production background may
not necessarily originate from the same production that the cel is from.
Matching Master Background / Key master Setup - This
is often referred to as a key master background setup, but is simply
a cel or cels with the background from the same scene that were originally
photographed. When framed these will look exactly as they do in the
original film or cartoon short.
Lithograph - These images (prints) are created using
a print process. They are produced in limited quantities, numbered and
signed or are mass produced. Non limited pieces become discontinued
and are harder to locate, therefore increasing in value.
Giclee - The French term "Giclée",
literally meaning "spray of ink," is used to describe these
prints. Four precision nozzles spray up to a million microscopic droplets
per second on to fine art paper. Then, each piece of paper is individually
hand-mounted. Displaying a full colour spectrum, the prints are lush
and velvety, capturing the subtle nuances of the original artwork.
What is Animation Art? - Animation Art is more than just the
cels and backgrounds seen by a camera in the finished version of an
animated film, cartoon, short or commercial. It also includes inspirational
sketches and paintings, story ideas, character models, and drawings
used in the making of the animated film, as well as post production
models and publicity work, and all other works prepared after its completion.
Why is Animation Art important? - Animation Art has
become a universal art form that has entertained, informed, and instructed
generations around the world for almost 100 years. Animation speaks
to everyone in a universal language, regardless of age, creed, or nationality.
makes Animation Art valuable? - Age and rarity are two important
factors. What character(s) are in the Artwork, and what expressions
they are showing. Figures in a full pose position are normally more
sought after than a head shot or half body pose. Memorable scenes from
classic films or cartoons create a high value. Villains and Princesses
are also valuable. Signatures of artists connected with a specific production
can often increase the value. Walt Disney's signature on the mount/mat
will also increase the value, as he never signed the artwork itself.
I invest in Animation Art? - Collectors have purchased Animation
Art for as little as one pound and sold it for hundred's or thousands
of pounds. You can view past auctions at Christie's to see the value
of vintage Disney and Warner pieces. The value of Animation Art is increasing
more rapidly than any other Art form on the collectable market. Select
and purchase Animation Art because it gives you pleasure. Enjoy it to
the full, and you will receive the greatest return on your investment,
the joy of owning a moment in film making history that will never be
is Premier Animation? - Premier Animation is an online gallery
offering some of the finest vintage and contemporary Animation Art on
the net. We are currently a mail order only and do not have a brick
and mortar gallery.
Are limited edition cels hand painted? - Yes limited edition
cels are hand painted reproductions of famous scenes, or are sometimes
newly created ones that often depict sports scenes, or mix characters
together that ordinarily would not appear together. Some collectors
also quite like the beautiful colour reproduction backgrounds that accompany
the pieces as well.
How many cels are used in a typical cartoon? - A film
runs at 24 frames per second. That number never changes. Therefore the
most any cartoon can be animated to is 24 fps. Budget films usually
run at 12 cels per second, each cel being shot twice. However, lower
budget cartoons can, and usually do, use the same cel three or more
times. The more a cel is used, the "jerkier" the final cartoon
will look. For a high budget cartoon, that runs for 8 minutes, there
are roughly 11,520 hand painted cels used...which is a lot of hard skilled
work (just think how many cels are used in a full length feature film).
There is a whole new question that arises from this, and that is how
many collectable cels are available from an 8 minute cartoon? Alternatively,
if an 8 minute cartoon is animated at 24 fps, are there 11,520 collectable
cels for sale? The answer is simply no. Firstly, you must consider that
about half of the cels could never be sold, due to the main character's
eyes being closed, they are passing behind another object, their back
is showing, or it is just an awkward non attractive pose. Therefore,
the majority of the cels have gone, and the remainder are left to be
either destroyed, damaged through bad storage or sold to the collectors
market. By this time there are only a small percentage of the cels available
