The Digital Age Necessitates New Approaches to Animation Education
In the age of digital media, animation is specializing in areas that transcend the field’s traditional boundaries as the convergence of arts and technology accelerates. Animation in combination with live-action footage, audio, and text plays a critical role in videogames, publishing, exhibitions and live performances.
Animation is created through a delicate balance between traditional arts and cutting-edge technology. In order to cultivate future animation talent, education programs need to cover production processes and methodologies drawn from the plastic arts, humanities and media technology.
