Alexander Petrov sketches for the Hemingway film, “The Old Man and the Sea”
I stumbled across the Russian animator: Alexander Petrov and his sketches and stills for his Animated version of “The old man and the Sea” (Ernest Hemingway). The approx. 20 minutes animation film took Alexander Petrov two years (1997-1999) to make and the artwork consisted of more than 29.000 frames. Petrov used a very time-consuming and difficult technique, where he used hand painted pastel oil paintings on glass for each frame.
SS Cameronia was a twin-screw triple-expansion 15,600-BHP passenger steamship. She was owned by the Glasgow-based Anchor Line and built by D&W Henderson Ltd. at Glasgow in 1911. The ship provided a transatlantic service from Glasgow to various destinations.
