COOP sent me this link to a very strange animation, circa 1960s, titled "Colormation Screen Test." The technique, similar in look to rotoscoping, appears to involve a combination of live actors, high-contrast cinematography, and hand-drawn backgrounds and foregrounds. As COOP writes, "The end result is unsettling but not without charm."
