Animation History is a survey course, looking at animation worldwide, from its beginnings to the present day, in the USA, Asia and Europe. We will explore how the the commercial production contexts (e.g. studio system), technologies and alternative approaches affect both form and content (art and indie filmmaking) in different countries. Emphasis is on viewing and discussion. Feature films, TV series and short films will be covered. Topics may also include: is there a canon? Politics and animation. The role of music in animation. Gender in animation. Relationships between live action and animation.
