Animation As a Form of Media

By: Adileax

ig-animation app youtube-Animation can be used to inform, educate, advertise and express feelings just as live action can by using the same techniques; including the use of color, film language and audio. The NSPCC advert by Russell Brooke on television set is a good example of how animation can be more effective than live action. There is no limit to how much a situation or an action can be exaggerated but still remain to be convincing. In the advert in case a real child was being thrown around it would be extremely controversial and although it is actually the proceedings behind closed doors it would be too much for some individuals to watch. The animated character is created in a manner that portrays the child in a way that will get the concept across. This example shows how valuable a tool animation really is, that it is not only a media form to entertain young children. It is also a good vehicle to exhibit that cartoon assault may be used to a positive end.

On the other hand cartoon violence can be quite aggressive and image like the ‘Grand Robbery Auto’ video games series and some Manga features involve a lot of violence and gore but created in a quite realistic way, not well suited for a new audience where as cartoons adapted from Marvel comics such as ‘Spiderman’ and the ‘X-Men’ are mainly orientated around fighting but done in a less ****** way. The combat sequences involve a few kicks and punches and a superhuman power can be used which doesn’t normally inflict much gory, physical harm on the opponent, instead the loser is still left with a scratch or two on their face with a trickle of blood oozing from their mouth. The fights, reasonable as they might be, are not overly graphic, otherwise they would have to be shown following your watershed, however they are descriptive enough to express what is going on within the history. Most important of all is the fact good always triumphs over evil in these cartoons. That is not justify the fighting but neither really does it encourage it. Fisticuffs in a live action feature is always more violent than fighting in cartoons as it involves real persons who can get hurt whereas cartoon character types feel nothing, making the fighting seem to be less practical than a live action fight sequence.

The idea that animation is a media form directed mainly at children is not necessarily true, but in some situations this can be used to the good thing about the producers. A good example of this is the recent ‘DairyLea’ ads, created in a THREE DIMENSIONAL Stop Motion technique it shows some talking deer encouraging children to eat their product, not only on its own, but with mashed potato. The ad shows that ‘DairyLea’ can be mixed with other foods and the format is more memorable to children (the talking cows), therefore they are more likely to ask their parents to buy them some. Another good example of animation directed at children is the ‘Green Cross Code’ (stop, look and listen). This informative commercial shows hedgehogs crossing a road in an animated and musical way, motivating children to do as they do and they will be safe. This specific format was chosen so children will remember how to safely cross the road as told by singing hedgehogs-which would not have been possible in real life via a live action format. The advert offers an interesting, memorable option to mundane, forgettable, live action instructions.

Since computer animation is made popular by children, (for example, the phenomenon of the ‘Pokemon’ series) there are a number of ways makers can capitalise on the launch and success of any series. The producers see many ways of making more money from your successful cartoon because they know that children will do anything to get their hands on elements of products, for example the ‘Pokemon’ battle cards. Merchandise really does not merely stop at actively playing cards though; there is stationary, cutlery, bags, toys and games, clothing, books, posters and video games. It is this side of cartoon which will result in adults distancing themselves from the style due to fact that the toon series is blatantly directed at children therefore this is enough to put them off watching. Earlier known as the animation format followed a biased approach directed solely at a more youthful audience. In the early on days animation it was fascinating concept, a drawing that was moving. Because it was a new concept many people coming from all ages took an interest.

Now the omnipresence of the format through the years that individuals think it is entertaining up to a point in their lives then just stop watching animation as they get older, then when they have kids of their own the viewing process starts again. It is due to this misconception of the format and its association with youngsters that successful attempts have been made to break this mould. Since some adults have an interest in animation specific headings and series’ have been aimed at an adult specific audience, these include the ‘2DTV’ series, some ‘Manga’ titles, Comedy Central’s ‘South Park’, ‘The Simpsons’, ‘Futurama’ and japan ‘Hen-Tai’. To conclude this point, John Serpentelli writes in an article, that “The connection between children and animation seems simple enough. To a child, anything at all is possible and the same is true for animation. ” The computer animation format is also able to inadvertently teach children about the artistic part of animation, as Steve Serpentelli says, “Since cartoon is an art form that can involve almost all other art forms and children can straight face the art world in an unfiltered manner. ”
