AHT 2450 - History of Animation


This course examines the history of animation with an emphasis on global influences, from its origins, through the hand drawn sequential sketch, to the present digitally animated films. We will explore each era of animation and seminal works and evaluate how history of animation has evolved to be intertwined with and separate from that of the gaming industry. We will therefore study the genre and pivotal moments, but will also assess the influence of technology, commerce, and other historical transformations on culture and the arts. Students of this course explore how public perceptions of illustration and illustrators have changed, as we grapple with the innovations and controversies associated with the field. (4 credits)
