Description

This unit explores the aesthetic forms and thematic concerns of animated film. It examines this through the study of: influential and popular animators, such as Norman McLaren and Walt Disney; animation techniques and forms, such as stop motion and cel animation; animation ‘genres’, such as narrative and abstract animation; and approaches to understanding ways in which animated films resonate with wider issues of culture, art and society. The unit develops an exploration of animation around a practical project where students make a short animated film. This will include structuring a narrative, storyboarding, designing and animating.
