What is Animation? I really like McClaren’s definition of animation. He says, “ Animation is not the art of drawings that move, but rather the art of movements that are drawn. What happens between each frame is more important than what happens with each frame”. (Solomon, 197: 11)
Also, I found interesting the different ways the American Animators and the Czech Animators create their works. The American’s works evolve mostly around copying the physical world of real objects, realities and peoples and animating them. The Czech’s animated work evolves around the fantastical, allowing their objects and realities to appear mostly all surreal.
