- FIGURE CONSTRUCTION, a brand new Vilppu video
Prestigious life drawing instructor Glenn Vilppu is offering a new video
tape of his classes. Vilppu said: "Figure Construction is a class room
demonstration of basic figure construction. This tape, I feel, is one of
the best examples that I have done so far on basic construction." His
material is being used worldwide in courses for animation students. The
Figure Construction video is available for $24.94 plus s/h. The Vilppu
catalog includes his Drawing Manual and Sketch Book, as well as 25 video
tapes of his classes, such as anatomy and animal drawing lectures,
demonstrations, exercises and specialized subjects.

- "PIC PIC ANDRE," a new Folioscope video
The outrageous duo of Pic Pic André and the Magic Pig have the amusing
characteristic of being...Belgian. Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar, those
other distant cousins of Tex Avery, cultivate nonsense with relentless
determination. It's impossible to describe a Pic Pic short film: they're
all over the place, completely out to lunch and they keep the gags coming
twenty-four times a second, so you have been warned! The 65-minute video
includes: "Pic Pic André Shoow The First;" "Babyroussa The Babyroussa;"
"Pic Pic André Shoow The Second;" "Les Baltus Au Cirque;" "Pic Pic André
Shoow 4 Moins 1;" and "L'ours, La Femme Et Le Chasseur." Available in
French language version, PAL (European) format only, for $16.00 plus s/h.
The Folioscope catalog includes a rare selection of videos, featuring
pioneer Belgian animator Raoul Servais ("Harpya"); the famous "Pat & Mat"
Czech puppets; La Cambre School films; a Best of the Brussels Cartoon and
Animated Film Festival; and more.
