FILM 3280 - Film Genres: Animation

5 credit hours
With iconic characters like Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, Totoro and Pokon, animation has shaped American and international popular culture, from the cel animation of Walt Disney and Studio Ghibli to today's computer-generated 3D animation and special effects. This class studies the development of animation in its different narrative, experimental and industrial forms over the last century, from comedic shorts to dramatic narratives, webisodes and advertising, while it also considers the role of technological developments in sound, music and color and the development of personality and character animation. It will offer changing historical and theoretical topics in animation: these might include the history of 2D and 3D animation; different modes of production (cel animation, sand, pin, stop motion and puppet animation, 3D), or different historical and contemporary American and international aesthetic developments (from anime to Zagreb). This class will fulfill your genre requirement for Film Majors. GN
