Paul Wells: Boundary Crossing Lecture (Complete Lecture)

As part of Boundary Crossings, Author Paul Wells delivered the lecture “Re-Imagining Animation” on July 17 at Pacific Northwest College of Art’s Swigert Commons. (Excerpt from full interview/lecture).

Paul Wells: Prolific Author Paul Wells, Director of the Animation Academy in the School of the Arts and Design at Loughorough University, discusses the changing face of animation and new media. Wells is the author of a range of animation books including “Re-Imagining Animation,” “Understanding Animation,” “Animation – Genre and Authorship (Short Cuts)” and “Basic Animation: Script Writing.”

Boundary Crossing: Animation has long existed outside the codes and conventions of the studio cartoon, traversing the terrain of space, time, and form. This two-week innovative institute explores the emerging field of animated arts through a combination of theory and practice sessions, lectures, and screenings. With the advent of digital technologies, the appearance of hybrid moving images has emerged as the norm, affecting boundaries between live action, animation, image processing, and compositing as porous as the platforms of display that host them. Through re-defining animation and the manipulated image, animated art forms are being pushed beyond the movies to permeate our cultural landscape.
