Halas & Batchel Archives to British Film Institute

by on December 6, 2010

The Guardian reports that the archives of the Halas and Batchel animation studios are to be given to the British Film Institute, making it the largest single donation of British animation to the BFI and containing a wealth of film prints, stills, scripts, correspondence, and original cels. The studio operated for more than 50 years in the United Kingdom, starting with a Kellogg’s Corn Flakes advertisement from 1940 and also including an adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm from 1954, Jackson Five cartoons from the 1970’s, and educational video screened widely in British schools.
