Hundreds of couples wearing sailor hats and nurse's caps gathered at Times Square on Saturday to commemorate the 65th anniversary from the end of World War II. They were re-enacting Alfred Eisenstaedt's photograph of your young sailor passionately kissing nurse Edith Shain in Times Square. A 26-foot-statue entitled 'Unconditional Surrender' which replicated that famous moment was erected to the celebration in Times Square, New York. We all remember traditional animation, which has been carried out with hand drawn art. A group of animators illustrated and colored the pictures on celluloid. The celluloid was transparent sheets, the place that the hand drawings were transferred. Each of these "cells", since they were called, were then photographed individually which has a super 8 or Oxford camera. Whew ! Lots of work? Well after a while, technology has allowed animators to use CGI or Computer Generated Imagery to exchange the "painful" frustrating work of the past.
