I found an article whilst looking for interior settings in Elle Decoration February 2013 about a German Filmmaker called Lotte Reiniger. I was originally really interested in Reiniger because a lot of her films are based on Brother's Grimm stories and fairy tales, however after watching the YouTube videos below, and ready the article in Elle Decoration, I think it's absolutely amazing what she did. The films below were made in 1930's and 1950's- and it is said that she was the first person to create an animated video. The detail in the videos is just amazing!
