United Productions of America was an animation studio active from the 1940’s through to the 70’s, but as this video essay from the Royal Ocean Film Society shows, their influences have carried on well past the time from the studio’s closure.


A three part series, this first episode introduces us to the climate in which UPA came to exist. In a time where animators were striking against the Disney company, and when World War 2 was actually pushing the medium in new and exciting ways, UPA was born out of a desire for a studio that would embrace the more abstract and creative sides of the artform.
