David Williams

David Williams’ abiding interest is the historical siting of film and film animation. He has researched British sources, Disney sources and the work of Lotte Reiniger, and organised important Exhibitions on these topics.

He is especially interested in the historical techniques of animation and, as a practical animation teacher, he believed that this knowledge transmitted to students gave them a better understanding of the scope, artistry and significance of the medium.

He retired from teaching at Teeside University in 2007.
