A Brief and Irreverent History of Character Animation: An Entire History in a Single Day

square Full Conference Access        triangleComputer Animation Festival Pass

Tuesday, 12 August, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Petree Hall D

This very concentrated, occasionally impertinent look at the evolution of frame-by-frame performance illustrates animation's progress and addresses the cultural and social scene surrounding its creation. With over 30 examples of how animated films comment on their own times, this talk traces character animation from its earliest days to the present and even takes a peek or two at what may be coming in this, the most controlled and most expansive of cinematic arts.
