Ray Pointer's book, The Art and Inventions of Max Fleischer, is the result of more than 40 years of investigating and studying Fleischer cartoons, and the work of Max Fleischer in particular.
As you can imagine, we were curious to talk to Mr. Pointer about this exciting new publication: what led him to write it? What has been the impact of Fleischer Studios, and its innovative work, on animation history?
For this interview we matched Mr. Pointer with Jane Reid, a member of the Fleischer Studios Board of Directors ... and Max Fleischer's granddaughter!
