Tracing the evolution of animation

Tracing the evolution of animation

Animation is no more a forte of only kids because adults too are enjoying this stream of cinema. It is for all age groups that a festival which will screen animated short films, ‘The Evolution of Animation: 1900 – 2012’ will be held in the City.

The festival will feature works of Ladislas Starevich, Emile Cohl, Norman McLaren, Len Lye, George Melies, Walt Disney, MTV, Adult Swim and other renowned animators across the globe.

‘Downstairs’ will screen a selection of short films, and excerpts from features, in an attempt to trace the evolution of modern-day animation. Starting from the traditional hand-drawn techniques of the early 1900s, winding its way through stop-motion, claymation, drawn-on- film and computer animation, the journey will end up at the sand animation, street art animation and chuckimation of the late 2000s.

The evening will feature films from the giant studios as well as by independent filmmakers. The venture is an initiative of The Tejeshwar Singh Memorial Trust and the festival is slated for July 21 from 7 pm onwards at S 47 Panchsheel Park.
