I am thrilled that Jackie Chan gets so much appreciation from film fans and makers of YouTube video essays. His work is being studied and there are many lessons for animators to soak up. Here is a recent video that makes a case for Chan as the fourth great silent comedian. It features some excellent examples from Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, and Charlie Chaplin. Chan studied their work and applied it to his own.
I have other posts about him on the topics of TIPS FOR ACTION COMEDY, HOW TO DO ACTION COMEDY, and the ten video extravaganza JACKIE CHAN’S TIPS FOR ANIMATORS. All these are worth watching more than once.
