While Winsor McCay was the pioneer of American animation, it was J. R. Bray who was the first to establish a true animated cartoon studio. His development of the process of cel animation created a rigid division of labor among animation workers, and served as a model for most other studios. While economically successful, this approach soon led the animated film to a marginal and highly conventionalized position within the motion picture industry.
