What can imagination do for animation?
Animation (or animated film) is a significant film form of contemporary art. Based on storytelling and full of the dialogue of imagination, it has a larger space of creation than live-action film, which allows animations to have more possibilities to respond in either a concrete or abstract themes than in live-action film.
reality is the foundation and the source of inspiration for live-action film, on the other side the fixed cognize of known world is limited the content of creation.
Wells addressed: “animation does not share the same method and approach of the live-action film. Rather, it prioritizes its capacity to resist ‘realism’ as a mode of representation and uses its various techniques to create numbers styles which are fundamentally about ‘realism’.” (Wells,1998)
