King by Claerbout Studio

Silent, black and white projection, based on a photograph in a book that marks the transition from ordinary life to superstardom of Elvis Presley, then aged 21.
In this animation (3D), the reconstructed head and body of Elvis have been textured using fragments of hundreds of original photographs of Elvis’ skin and features, allowing the camera to come in a close-up of one of the worlds most charismatic figures.

Monty Python by Terry Gilliam

Gilliam was a part of Monty Python’s Flying Circus as an animator. His cartoons linked the show’s sketches together and defined the group’s visual language in other media (such as LP and book covers and the title sequences of their films). His animations mix his own art, characterised by soft gradients and odd, bulbous shapes, with backgrounds and moving cutouts from antique photographs, mostly from the Victorian era.
