Perhaps it’s the advancement of worldwide technology that drives the evolution of animation to remain one step ahead. The illusions formed through animation have become so precise, that accessories, such as 3D screens and glasses are unneeded to experience the realistic sense of movement that modelling has become. Computer advancements have made the animation process less labour intensive and more seamless than ever before. Instantly classic films such as Finding Dory and The Secret Life of Pets are only possible due to this progress in animation. Disney’s Pixar and Universal Studios are among the pioneers for animation excellence today.
Finding Dory uses spectacular animation to bring undersea imagery into 3-dimesional form. Dory’s behaviour allows viewers to swim through an adventure with one of their favourite fishy friends. Perfectly harmonising, a noteworthy soundtrack accompanies the Pixar story allowing for a temporary escape from reality.
The Secret Life of Pets
It’s no secret, The Secret Life of Pets was a blockbuster hit in theatres. One of the greatest gifts animation brings to our lives is the ability to transform animals into human-like characters. This film successfully delights every pet lover who has ever questioned what their furry friends do when they are alone.
Both films are marvellous examples of the power animation holds in a world that we sometimes wish was animated. Virtual escapism is a form of therapy for many, and it just keeps getting better.
