Terry Gilliam is the inspiration for the animations on the Historic Voicebot’s touchscreen, famous for his cut out animations in Monty Python.
I think cut out animations could work very well for the concept of the voicebot, because there aren’t that many available pictures or cartoons of all historical figures. By using cut out animations, I think it should be possible to recreate the same look and feel for basically any (historical) figure.
I came across this video where he explains exactly how he makes his animations. Enjoy!
