History and Analysis of Animated Cinema
FILM 303
Spring 2019
Section: 01  

Animation is more important than ever to film studies. Over the past decade the boundary between live-action and animation has eroded, reorienting the way practitioners and scholars understand the medium. This course will provide a historical and theoretical introduction to the art of animated film and television. In addition to popular animation, this course will survey auteur, experimental, and animated documentary films in relation to their contributions to big studio productions. It has long been understood that animated features and television series are widely informed by the history of experimental and auteur animation. The curriculum teaches methods of critical research, discussion, writing, critique, and presentation that informs critical growth.
