WATCH ME MOVE: COMPUTER ANIMATION

Sunday, November 24, 2013

2:00 PM DFT Auditorium

Enhance your visit to Watch Me Move: The Animation Show by attending an animation compilation in the historic Detroit Film Theatre. All exhibition visitors receive one free ticket for the films listed below; additional tickets are $5.00 each. Total running time for each film is approximately 60 min. 

The earliest experiments in computer generated imagery, or CGI, took place in the 1960s, but it wasn’t until 1986 that Pixar’s short film Luxo Jr. made the world take notice. Following Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs in 1993, computer animation became a doorway that animators and feature filmmakers embraced as a limitless frontier. Program curated By Steve Stanchfield, Professor of Animation, Entertainment Arts, College for Creative Studies.
