Mainstream animation is often coupled with Hollywood studios, yet many of the earliest examples of the art form were created in New York City. Production of animated films continues to thrive here. In this course students will learn about animation's New York roots and the iconic animators who paved the way for today's artists. We will screen locally produced animation from many periods and examine how a variety of cultures that thrive in New York City have impacted the evolution of animation. Sessions will include guest lectures from the animation community.
