Animated Films

Animated Films | History of Animation in Film | Scoop.it

Animated Films are ones in which individual drawings, paintings, or illustrations are photographed frame by frame (stop-frame cinematography). Usually, each frame differs slightly from the one preceding it, giving the illusion of movement when frames are projected in rapid succession at 24 frames per second. The earliest cinema animation was composed of frame-by-frame, hand-drawn images. When combined with movement, the illustrator's two-dimensional static art came alive and created pure and imaginative cinematic images - animals and other inanimate objects could become evil villains or heroes.

Gene Chorba's insight:

A great resource about animation and cartoons. Full of great history and information. THis is an incredibly valuable resource for understanding the evolution of animation in film.

Walt Disney Animation Studios (Steamboat Willie)

The classic Mickey Mouse cartoon
Gene Chorba's insight:

This is a landmark film in the history of animation. It is very important for two reasons. First of all it introduced the world to Mickey Mouse, and his girlfriend Minnie. secondly it is also the first cartoon with completely synchronized sound, an improvement from Max Fleischer's My Old Kentucky Home.
