YouTube Channels

Lindsay Ellis: Formerly the Nostalgia Chick, Lindsay has gone on and carved out a crazy impressive channel of her own, doing deep dive (we’re talking 40+-minutes) pieces on many Disney favorites like Hercules, Pocahontas, and Hunchback. Another highlight is her ongoing series teaching film theory via the Transformers series.

Royal Ocean Film Society: Topics vary, but are always enjoyable. There are some great animation-related essays on the channel, like one about editing for animation and one about Richard Williams.

Every Frame a Painting: Kind of a no-brainer, but still, gotta list it. Sadly, this channel was ended and boy do I miss it. The co-creators were nice enough to end with a postmortem blog post that’s just as illuminating as any of the videos on their YouTube channel.
