The Fine Art of Handmade Animated Film
Summer 2014 quarter (Session I)
In direct animation, a century-old camera-less form, artists use painting, scratching and myriad techniques not recommended by manufacturers to animate on motion picture film. It is an analog art offering experiential escape from increasingly digital visual cultures. In this intensive hands-on class students will practice numerous methods of direct animation including darkroom hand-processing, and invent their own techniques to create lots of footage in a short time, while studying genre masters like Len Lye, Norman McLaren, and Barbel Neubauer. Final culminating projects will explore analog and digital methods for publicly presenting students' work in a grand, celebratory projection performance extravaganza.
