The Adventures of Prince Achmed is a 1926 German animated fairytale film by Lotte Reiniger. It is one of the oldest surviving animated feature films. The movie features a silhouette animation technique Reiniger had invented which involved manipulated cutouts made from cardboard and thin sheets of lead under a camera. The technique she used for the camera is similar to Wayang shadow puppets, though hers were animated frame by frame, not manipulated in live action.

The first full length animated film and all of the characters and details were hand cut out of paper, one by one.

“My first stage role with a speaking part, believe it or not, was as a priest. It wasn’t until I began acting in films that the producers and directors saw me primarily as a bizarre villain”.
