Euan Frizzell

Animator

Veteran animator Euan Frizzell brought his artist's hands to almost every form of the genre, from traditional cartoons to stop motion to computer generated animation. Along the way, he animated stories by local legends Margaret Mahy and Lynley Dodd, and directed and animated for Bugs Bunny, Road Runner and Fred Flintstone. Frizzell died on 23 September 2012.

Computers have opened up new areas that animation can be used in. Aside from traditional 2-D animation, which is still hand-drawn, everything else has changed and is still changing quite rapidly. Euan Frizzell
