Film Language Tag: cut-out animation

An animation technique where flat shapes, generally cut from paper, cardboard, plastic, etc., are photographed in a series of poses against a flat background. For example, the original short film featuring the characters from South Park (1997-), The Spirit of Christmas (1992), was produced using paper cutout animation. The South Park series episodes are produced using computer animation that has been designed to replicate the look of the original paper cutout animation. Kroon, R. W.
