Dear List Subscribers,
It is our pleasure to present last month’s highlights from Fantasy-Animation.org. Last month, we featured:
- A monster double-bill in blog entries, including Benjamin Pinsent (UEA)’s analysis of practical effects in King Kong (1976), and Steve Rawle (York St. John)’s discussion of performance and stardom in the cinematic world(s) of Godzilla
- Reflections on animation as a tool of imaginative visualisation, including Nea Ehrlich’s (Ben Gurion) consideration of the medium’s role in popular visual culture and Mihaela Mihailova (University of Michigan) discussing the use of animation as a visualization tool within the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
- Podcasts on Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove (2000) and Hercules (1997)
If you are interested in contributing to an ever-expanding research community of academics, writers, animators and artists, get in touch via fantasy-animation[http://.org/].org. We operate on a rolling submission basis and are always open to receiving proposals for editorials, reviews and creative reflections.
All best wishes,
Dr. Alexander Sergeant
