✏Animierte Wunderwelten Animated Wonderworlds Book Summary : Before buying this enhanced ebook, please confirm that your reader is compatible with fixed layout and videos. For more information, please scroll down. Bevor Sie dieses erweiterte eBook kaufen, prüfen Sie, ob Ihr Reader Fixed Layout und Videosequenzen wiedergeben kann. Aus Pixeln gebaute Fabelwesen bewohnen fantastische Welten, Flugsimulatoren lassen uns schweben wie Vögel, Medienfassaden überformen ganze Bauwerke. Animierte Bilder wie diese durchdringen die visuelle Kultur und bestimmen unseren Alltag so selbstverständlich mit, dass wir sie kaum bewusst wahrnehmen. In hyperrealistischen Bildern verschwimmen die Grenzen von Wirklichkeit und Fiktion. Ebenso verblüffende körperliche oder räumliche Erfahrungen bieten interaktive Werke wie Games oder immersive Installationen. Animation verleiht aber auch Formlosem wie Daten und Informationen oder philosophischen Ideen eine Gestalt und macht Ereignisse im Nanometer-Bereich sichtbar. Die Publikation zeigt massgebende Arbeiten und ihre Entstehung und gibt so Einblicke in die mannigfaltigen Welten der Animation in der Ära des Digitalen. Mythical creatures constructed from pixels inhabit fantastical worlds, flight simulators give us a chance to soar like birds, and media facades transform entire buildings. Animated images such as these permeate our visual culture and we take them and the way they shape our everyday lives so much for granted that we scarcely notice them, at least consciously. Hyper-realistic images blur the borderlines between reality and fiction. Interactive creations such as video games or immersive installations offer equally astounding experiences. Animation also gives a form to philosophical ideas or formats without a clear shape, such as data and information, and renders nanometre-scale events visible. The publication presents key works and looks at how they came into being, offering glimpses into the multi-faceted world of animation in the digital era. More than 20 video clips are included in the expanded eBook, which offers genuine multi-media added value.

✏The Animated Bestiary Book Summary : Cartoonists and animators have given animals human characteristics for so long that audiences are now accustomed to seeing Bugs Bunny singing opera and Mickey Mouse walking his dog Pluto. The Animated Bestiary critically evaluates the depiction of animals in cartoons and animation more generally. Paul Wells argues that artists use animals to engage with issues that would be more difficult to address directly because of political, religious, or social taboos. Consequently, and principally through anthropomorphism, animation uses animals to play out a performance of gender, sex and sexuality, racial and national traits, and shifting identity, often challenging how we think about ourselves. Wells draws on a wide range of examples, from the original King Kongto Nick Park's Chicken Run to Disney cartoonsùsuch as Tarzan, The Jungle Book, and Brother Bearùto reflect on people by looking at the ways in which they respond to animals in cartoons and films.

✏Music in Disney s Animated Features Book Summary : In Music in Disney's Animated Features James Bohn investigates how music functions in Disney animated films and identifies several vanguard techniques used in them. In addition he also presents a history of music in Disney animated films, as well as biographical information on several of the Walt Disney Studios" seminal composers. The popularity and critical acclaim of Disney animated features truly is built as much on music as it is on animation. Beginning with Steamboat Willie and continuing through all of the animated features created under Disney's personal supervision, music was the organizing element of Disney's animation. Songs establish character, aid in narrative, and fashion the backbone of the Studios" movies from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs through The Jungle Book and beyond. Bohn underscores these points while presenting a detailed history of music in Disney's animated films. The book includes research done at the Walt Disney Archives as well as materials gathered from numerous other facilities. In his research of the Studios" notable composers, Bohn includes perspectives from family members, thus lending a personal dimension to his presentation of the magical Studios" musical history. The volume's numerous musical examples demonstrate techniques used throughout the Studios" animated classics.

✏The Wild Girl Natural Man and the Monster Book Summary : This study looks at the lives of the most famous "wild children" of eighteenth-century Europe, showing how they open a window onto European ideas about the potential and perfectibility of mankind. Julia V. Douthwaite recounts reports of feral children such as the wild girl of Champagne (captured in 1731 and baptized as Marie-Angélique Leblanc), offering a fascinating glimpse into beliefs about the difference between man and beast and the means once used to civilize the uncivilized. A variety of educational experiments failed to tame these feral children by the standards of the day. After telling their stories, Douthwaite turns to literature that reflects on similar experiments to perfect human subjects. Her examples range from utopian schemes for progressive childrearing to philosophical tales of animated statues, from revolutionary theories of regenerated men to Gothic tales of scientists run amok. Encompassing thinkers such as Rousseau, Sade, Defoe, and Mary Shelley, Douthwaite shows how the Enlightenment conceived of mankind as an infinitely malleable entity, first with optimism, then with apprehension. Exposing the darker side of eighteenth-century thought, she demonstrates how advances in science gave rise to troubling ethical concerns, as parents, scientists, and politicians tried to perfect mankind with disastrous results.

✏Funnybooks Book Summary : Funnybooks is the story of the most popular American comic books of the 1940s and 1950s, those published under the Dell label. For a time, “Dell Comics Are Good Comics” was more than a slogan—it was a simple statement of fact. Many of the stories written and drawn by people like Carl Barks (Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge), John Stanley (Little Lulu), and Walt Kelly (Pogo) repay reading and rereading by educated adults even today, decades after they were published as disposable entertainment for children. Such triumphs were improbable, to say the least, because midcentury comics were so widely dismissed as trash by angry parents, indignant librarians, and even many of the people who published them. It was all but miraculous that a few great cartoonists were able to look past that nearly universal scorn and grasp the artistic potential of their medium. With clarity and enthusiasm, Barrier explains what made the best stories in the Dell comic books so special. He deftly turns a complex and detailed history into an expressive narrative sure to appeal to an audience beyond scholars and historians.
