Sergei Eisenstein was an acclaimed Soviet director, who pioneered the theory and use of montages in film making (the montage in this case being defined by Sergei as "montage is an idea that arises from the collision of independent shots," and where "each sequential element is perceived not next to the other, but on top of the other.") as well as the "fast cutting" technique.

Many animators, most notably Creator/WaltDisney, [[HarmanAndIsing Hugh Harman]] and ShamusCulhane were heavily influenced by his work. Eisenstein himself was [[OneOfUs an animation fan]] and one of the first to recognize its potentials - ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' was his favorite movie.
