Long ago I worked in the multi-image industry, as part of a small, seven-person company that won many of the top awards in world-wide international competition. The image above was one of the animation stills that we crafted for a 1984 presentation we created for Newport News Shipbuilding (now a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries), one of the last remaining US Navy shipbuilders in the nation. The presentation was intended to illustrate to visitors of all levels just what the shipyard did and what it was capable of creating; it ran for the better part of a decade there at the shipyard. This particular still is an example of hand-drawn 3-point perspective – and as I recall – had some 35 different overlays that translated into 70 positive and negative pieces of film, which were then shot on 35mm film and combined entirely in camera to produce the finished image. This was all done before computer graphics burst on the scene a few years later.
