Documentary animation

An interesting sounding new book coming from Focal Press in January 2012, Animated Realism: A Behind The Scenes Look at the Animated Documentary Genre

“With the development and accessibility of animation tools and techniques, filmmakers are blurring the boundaries between documentary filmmaking and animation. Animated Realism presents animation techniques as they apply to the documentary genre, with an inspirational behind-the-scenes look at award-winning animated documentaries.”

Those interested in this sort of film should also look at the inspirational movie American Splendor.

One thought on “Documentary animation

  1. I came across this today, too, and it’s particularly interesting given that my current project is a fictional documentary. I’ve previewed the book, and much of it is interviews. Very interesting, but don’t expect it to be a manual of sorts.
