Today we were given our feedback from the presentation and introduced to the History of Animation.
he first topic we looked at this week was European Animation.
This was interesting to learn about because the first animators were actually painters who wanted to show movement more. With the Modernists taking over the art world and the invention of Cinema this was a great opportunity for the Artists to show movement through moving images. The animations that were created during this time were mainly shapes moving about to the music that was with them.
I have more information on this in my sketchbook.
