School animation: disputed territory between art and academia
Wednesday June 17 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Most of the animated productions that appear in film, animation and audiovisual schools tend to have little diffusion beyond the classroom walls; which is reasonable since its purpose is not to take corporeality as a finished "work", but rather productions whose usefulness lies, mainly, in serving as a learning instrument. Notwithstanding this, some “school” animation films are made with a subsequent tour of festivals. We are interested in this work to dwell on those productions, which due to their technical and expressive characteristics manage to overcome the classrooms and manage to find their own screens. Student animations are usually very diverse in terms of theme and aesthetic resolution; and they can range from the independent and experimental to the more classic and trivial.
