Timeline of Animation

  1. 2. <ul><li>Created by early special effects master Willis O'Brien. </li></ul><ul><li>An expedition to rescue a woman, who has been held at the top of a high mountain in the Amazon forest. by prehistoric dinosaurs. </li></ul><ul><li>Its main key features are the fact that its black and white, a fiction film, that creates moving dinosaurs very cleverly using stop motion animation. </li></ul><ul><li>I feel mainly older people who are quite interested in fiction, would be extremely amazed at this film, as I feel it isn't something a little kid would be interested in or even understand properly. </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>This film was directed by Harold L. Muller. </li></ul><ul><li>Stop-motion animation piece featuring Charley Bowers and a metal-eating bird. The creature devours junk from an auto scrap yard, then lays an egg that hatches and grows into a brand new car! </li></ul><ul><li>It’s a very unique unusual animation; which was made in clack and white, making one of its main features a mechanical bird which was very cleverly thought of . </li></ul><ul><li>The clip seems more aimed at children as I feel, kids would find this clip extremely amusing. As its a very early clip and technology was not so large back then, kids would have found this little clip great fun to watch. </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>This film was directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack. </li></ul><ul><li>Jill Young has brought up her pet gorilla since she was a child. Twelve years later, the gorilla is fully grown, a Hollywood convinces Jill to bring her extraordinarily large gorilla, Joe, back to America. While in Hollywood, Joe is used in a stage production and is exploited to no end. It doesn't take long until Joe is sick of being mistreated and he escapes to run loose in civilization. </li></ul><ul><li>The main feature was how they used stop animation on the gorilla, which was made with great detail, to give the audience a greater effect. </li></ul><ul><li>I feel this film is aimed at adults/young adults, as its quite an interesting, film, which young kids might find scary, although it is a good family film if you like a good exhilarating action movie. </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>This film was directed by Henry Selick. </li></ul><ul><li>Bored and unhappy with the life of being &quot;The Pumpkin King&quot; Jack Skellington of Halloween Town, Jack sets out to find something exciting. Jack discovers &quot;Christmas Town&quot; and takes it upon himself to take over the duties of Santa to deliver toys across the world to children. </li></ul><ul><li>The main key features are how they showed the characters though slow motion animation, giving it a sophisticated and professional look to the film, whilst also making the movie in colour. </li></ul><ul><li>I feel teenage boys/kids would enjoy this film as the story line and theme is a lot more what kids would find interesting, especially boys mainly as its got a very scary, spooky theme to it which many girls might not be interested in. </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>This film was directed by Peter Lord, Nick P </li></ul><ul><li>Having been hopelessly repressed and facing eventual certain death at the chicken farm where they are held, Rocky the rooster and Ginger the chicken decide to rebel against the evil Mr. and Mrs. Tweedy, the farm's owners. Rocky and Ginger lead their fellow chickens in a great escape from the murderous farmers and their farm of doom. </li></ul><ul><li>Its main key features are how they made everything look so amazing just through plasticine. How the chickens were very smoothly made the people were all made from plasticine. It was an amazing piece of animation and all through stop motion. </li></ul><ul><li>I feel little children would enjoy this film, as its a very childish play with a story line based on chickens in which children would find extremely amusing. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>This film was directed by Henry Selick . </li></ul><ul><li>Coraline is a young girl who moves to a house in the country with her self-involved parents. She becomes bored and begins to explore her new surroundings, meeting her neighbors and a stray cat. During her explorations, she finds a secret door and enters into the magical world of the Other Mother, who wants Coraline to stay with her forever. </li></ul><ul><li>The main key features are the fact that Caroline is the first full-length stop motion feature to be shot entirely in 3D. The attention to detail is amazing – everything is handmade. Coraline’s gloves were hand-knit; the cherry blossoms on the cherry trees are actually hundreds of pieces of popped corn, hand-painted pink in the centre; every strand of Coraline’s hair can be animated separately. </li></ul><ul><li>I feel the target audience was mainly for little kids and more for little girls and it was all about a little girl’s adventure which little kids would find really interesting. </li></ul>
