CFP: Animation & Movement, September Theme

(Deadline Friday 26th August 2016)
September’s theme looks at the links between animation and movement. While these might seem obvious to the readers of this post, movement in animation is both constructed, and perceived, in many varied and subtly different ways. How do animators think about movement? What processes do they bring to the creation and construction of animated movement? How do audiences perceive animated movement? What contributes to the various “qualities of movement” in animation? These and many other questions are raised in the potentialities of movement in animation.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

· Animators engagement with movement (thinking, planning)

· Qualities of movement in animation (motion capture, stop-frame, hand drawn, rotoscope, 3D CGI, experimental combinations)

· Scientific support for movement perception in animation

· Animation and movement in pedagogy

Posts of between 300 and 500 words, which discuss any aspect of the above topic are welcome. Contributors are encouraged to include clips and images to support their posts. Please also include a short bio to accompany the post. All permissions are the responsibility of the contributor. Please contact the guest editor for submissions and questions.
