"The Adventures of Herman are not unlike those of Mickey Mouse, for although Herman may be of the same species, he is a bit bigger - just enough bigger to irritate the owner of the house in which he resides. Herman is about ten inches tall, and his movements, through single frame animation, are inter-cut with live action" PSA Journal, Aug. 1967, 36.
“The question ‘How was the mentü ship Steered’ bears two meanings: as inference in the sense of ‘faith,’ as well as the relation between the notions of ‘imagery, logos, and action.’ The answer is ‘divine love,’ regardless of the form of the question: the Amentü ship is navigated by the love of God. ” Zeynep Gemuhluoglu, tsa.org: https://www.tsa.org.tr/en/yazi/yazidetay/67/%EF%BF%BD%EF%BF%BDmentu-gemisi-nasil-yurudu (16 Oct 2019).
This film symbolizes a city man with a triangle and a country woman with a circle to express their encounter through movements. This work was created by using the Kinemacolor technique. To create a multi-color film, the creators shot a black-and-white film, alternating frame by frame between a red filter and a green filter, and developed it. They colored the film alternately in red and in green frame by frame, and projected the completed film at twice the normal speed (28fps to 32fps, according to Ogino).
"Between 1877 and 1885, an English photographer, Eadweard Muybridge, conducted detailed experiments analyzing human and animal motion using rapid photography. In 1968, John Straiton took the published works of Muybridge and created from them a fascinating and hilarious film. A tribute to the serious maker of the first nudie before the invention of movies."

"Average Is a Tiger Named Clyde is a clever animated film which pokes fun through its satire on many events and customs common to us all" PSA Journal, Sept. 1966, 34.
"Ballerina is easily the most unusual film to be entered in the Competition in many years. Alise Ziverts the maker, has scratched the images on a piece of opaque 16mm film. Though the technique is not new, her masterful effort of depicting a man and a woman dancer with no more than a sharp needle is little less than amazing. With a screen time of one minute at 16 frames per second, this amounts to approximately 1000 separate drawings Miss Ziverts was required to make on the small frame area" PSA Journal, Sept. 1966, 35.
"An English satire on army life at an outpost, by the Grasshopper Group, is a clever bit of cartoon work in color. There are soldiers and officers to line them up for drill and a mischievous little girl to upset the decorum. The enemy has charged, the battle is on, with the silly antics of a comic. Finally, the enemy is defeated and rolled up in a caricature polo fashion. A delightful cartoon, interesting and entertaining." PSA Journal, Nov. 1957, 32.
"Animated figures have seldom been presented with such meticulous technique and in such clever situations as are executed by Clifford Bach in Breakfast in Bed. A perfectionist to the last twitch of an eyebrow, Mr. Bach has achieved exceptional realism in the movements of his small figures by painstaking frame by frame exposure and expressive camera viewpoints. His story follows the efforts of a cocky little cockatoo, Windy, to prepare breakfast for his master, Professor Whiffle. Windy's ingenuity overcomes all obstacles in a series of neatly motivated and genuinely amusing "gags." Mr. Bach's persistence and eye for design indicate a bright future in the field of animated movies." Movie Makers, Dec. 1947, 536.
"Button Ballet is a nifty little piece of animation. A number of buttons do a ballet set to Brahms music in one of the most masterfully executed animation films ever seen in this competition" PSA Journal, Aug. 1967, 36.
