Ho-Won Nah MPhil

MA work

(thesis-based)

In my thesis I raise questions about how the presence of animators in animation films is related to specific animation techniques, and how the presence can be maintained in the transformation of a production situation, the change from individual creation to the division of labour. I argue that the intersection of revelation and concealment surrounding the presence of the animator does not simply represent the animator's self-reflection as a creator in the change of production system. I suggest it further involves the animator's reconsideration of the property of animation image as a double sign and its mechanical premise of the frame-by-frame.
