Cartoon

Functions of animation

Surprise or wonder

Portrayal of wondrous creatures, action by inanimate objects

Combine humans with inhuman characters

Portray real places, events, etc. that cannot be filmed (efficiently)

CSI

House

Present content that would be considered inappropriate for live actors to engage in

South ParkSlide6

Functions of animation

Provide a viewpoint that cannot effectively be presented otherwise

Allow for enhanced interaction with the video

Real-time interactivity

Save money

But only for limited animation

Gain increased control over the videoSlide7

Animation has a long history

Early visual toys

Flip books, etc.

Development of animation in early days of film

Gertie

the Dinosaur (

McCay

)

Stop-motion (

Melies

)

Animated shorts (1920s and 1930s)

Felix the Cat

Mickey Mouse

Merrie

MelodiesSlide8

Early animation

Early animation was based on the production of a series of paper drawings that were then photographed in order

Gertie

the Dinosaur

Very time-intensive process and quite simple pictures

B/W characters and flat backgrounds

Repetitive motions

Jerky presentationSlide9

Fleisher brothers

Gradually more sophisticated presentations

More attention to narrative

Silent

Felix the Cat

Develop sound on film

Betty

BoopSlide10

Cartoon animation

At first, all pictures were hand-drawn completely

Cel

process

Portion of the picture that moves is drawn on plastic sheet, background remains steady

As animation progressed, multiple

cel

layers were developedSlide11

Cel animation

Rather than producing all pix on opaque paper, animators began to use layers of cellophane and change only parts of the picture, usually retaining the background for many pictures and only replacing the top

cel

with the charactersSlide12

Disney

During the 1930s Walt Disney’s animation studios came to dominate the commercial animation scene

Turned to feature-length films after Snow White

Naturalism

Shorts were often produced by Warner Bros, Fleischer, others

More abstractSlide13

Disney

Walt Disney wanted to make the animation seem realistic even as it portrayed animals as talking, etc.

Realistic movement

Realistic background

Sense of depth

ColorSlide14

Disney innovations

Color

Sound

Depth

Camera

Realistic depiction

Extensive use of

Rotoscope

(not first to use)

Feature length

Industrialization of productionSlide15

Rotoscoping

To improve the naturalness of the motion, the device projected actual photos onto a light table where they were traced and the outline was then filled in with cartoon character

Used in Snow White to make her movements more realisticSlide16

Cartoon animation

Developed a system (Disney perfected) where main animators would produce “key frames” or pictures that occurred at most important moments of action, then “

tweeners

” would produce the pictures that occurred between the key framesSlide17

UPA

Very abstract

Limited animation

Cheaper

Gerald

McBoingBoingSlide18

Abstract animation

Many animators do not want to present animation as though it were real—want the art of the visual and the audio to be retained

Merry Melodies

Ralph

Bakshi

Matt GroeningSlide19

Stop motion

Take picture, move object, take picture

Painstaking process

Can look jerky

Models can have mechanical problems

May need multiple models/puppets, etc.

The most spectacular example in early film was King Kong

Stop motion had been developed some time before, but usually only lasted a short time, did not try to present life-like motion of objectsSlide20

Stop motion

Melies

Gumby

Wallace and

Gromit
