A History Of Animation

Animation is my favourite medium. It always has been. Up until recently, it was the only way to achieve certain visions in TV and film. And actually, it still is the only way to achieve those things. CG is just another form of animation, the latest in a long line of advances that continues to innovate.

Animation is not for children, which is a terrible falsehood that Hollywood does now, and has often, believed in. But all you need to do is look at the output of Adult Swim, or Pixar, or a hundred other examples of cartoons, motion capture, and stop frame films that don't have children in mind.

PBS has released their Off Book segment exploring the evolution of the art. Watch it, and be happy for the rest of the day.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
