The rotoscoping technique has evolved alongside the special effects world for close to a century. Since the beginning popularity of the silent, animated short, to the experimental film wave, animation and real life film footage began cohabiting the screen together instead of sticking to their respective corners. By basing animated sequences on actual movements, backgrounds, and environments, the jumpy, free drawn cartoons that may have existed prior are trumped by a whole new league of clashing styles.
