Hello! Welcome to my Senior Seminar animation blog, here I will be talking about animation and its modern applications, as well as exploring the origins and gradual evolution of the medium. Animation is considered by many to be on the same level as mediums such as Film and Paintings in terms of creativity, and in fact is a combination of the two. Animation follows many the same principles of and contains similar characteristics of film; however, it provides an easier means of expression without an attached cost of production that a film may have had. Animation can be considered the 8th art in the sense that it does much of the same work that film, the so-called “7th art” does, however, without the same restrictions that film possesses, and often is reflective of a unique style of the creator. Hope you enjoy the experience this site provides!
