ANIMATION IN CONTEXT: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO THEORY AND MAKING. Mark Collington. Fairchild Books, Bloomsbury Publishing, New York, 2016. Required Reading Range. 248 pp. with 120 ills. (97 col.). 27 x 21 cm. LC 2016-43595 ISBN 9781472578280 In English.
Publisher's description: Animation in Context is an illustrated introduction to contextual research and analysis. Designed to make academic language more accessible, and empower animators with the confidence and enthusiasm to engage with theory as a fun, integral, and applied part of the creative process. Mark Collington focuses on a core selection of theoretical approaches that shape animation narrative and visual storytelling, supported by a broader set of shared theoretical principles from the worlds of art, design, film and media studies. This discourse is underpinned by cross-disciplinary thinking on a range of topics including sound, semiotics, allegory and montage, in relation to movements such as Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism and Pop Art. These are applied to the analysis of a range of animated films and projects from Disney and Anime productions, to animated documentary, and the work of independent artist-filmmakers such as Frank Mouris and Jan Svankmajer. Interviews with contemporary industry professionals, academics and student case studies, as well as a range of practical research exercises, combine to encourage a more versatile approach to animation practice.
