Little Island Richard Williams

The Little Island (1958) is Richard Williams’s first animated short film, which he wrote, produced, directed, and animated. It won Best Experimental Film of the Year in Venice, and the following year it won a BAFTA Award for Best Animated Film.

Before becoming the legendary draftsman we know of today, Williams did illustration for a living and also painted in his spare time. He detested the art world of his time, and subsequently pursued a career in animation, despite having to work in commercial art again.
