From the earliest days of cinema, visionary film-makers sought to use animation techniques to take film into exciting new territories. From abstract art to delicate shadow puppets, and from pictorial descriptions of music to anthropomorphic talking animals, the possibilities of animated films are endless. In this visually dynamic new course, we will focus on some of the key pioneers of this unique form of film-making, including Emile Cohl, Lotte Reiniger, Walt Disney, Len Lye, Norman McLaren, Mary Ellen Bute, Jan Švankmajer and many more. We will end by looking at some of the amazing animation talent coming out of Dundee today.
