The first movie I ever saw was a horror movie. It was Bambi. When that little deer gets caught in the forest fire, I was terrified, but I was also exhilarated." — Stephen King

This course is an examination of the animation medium. The first half of the course will primarily focus on classical Hollywood animation from 1928 to 1958. In the second half of the course we will study animation from studios in Canada, Europe, and Asia. What is the definition of an animated film? What can an animated film do that a live-action film cannot do? How have animators handled questions of race and gender? How have they handled sex and violence? How does animation technology change through the century and how does technology affect the meaning of animated films?
