A new edition of Paul Wells’ introduction to animation as a genre and a form, has been updated in response to developments in academic debate and the recent flourishing of the genre in cinema, on TV and in videogames. Film examples discussed will include features such as The Incredibles, Belleville Rendez-vous and Spirited Away. Shorts will include 'Father and Daughter', 'The Wolfman', 'Mt Head' and 'The Last Words of Dutch Schultz'.
Historical/theoretical take on wide range of animation. Wells writes with humour and a shitload of passion.
