Sample text

Certainly, the ambiguity associated with the look of the imagery is reinforced by the subtle use of pastiche, the assimilation of different styles, the tacit adoption of the codes and conventions that underlie them, pervading the whole of the film. However, it is only partially correct to say that the image track in Red’s Dream, synthesised entirely 19 20 A READER IN ANIMATION STUDIES by digital computer, involves a completely new way of creating old ways of seeing. It certainly does involve this, the means and processes involved are wholly new, and ‘institutional modes of representation’ which developed earlier and in association with other media are assimilated by this new process in the film in question.

However, among other things, it is able to emulate three-dimensional spatial and temporal conditions, natural and non-natural lighting conditions and effects, surface texture, the full range of colours, the movement of objects and, as well, the complete range of movements of a virtual film camera within and around it. When cartoon characters and, just as importantly, cartoonal tropes such as anthropomorphism are then imaged through this simulacrum of the live action studio, and the resulting impression of a new level of analogical imagery is achieved within the cartoon, then this is a consequence of the peculiar crossing or fusing of traditionally distinct forms of film.

It is rather, the outcome of a striving for photo realism by other means; an ‘accident’ almost, of the experimentation taking place in efforts to achieve the goal of computer simulations that are totally indistinguishable from photographs or films. 7 I am claiming that what is important about Red’s Dream is the peculiar way in which it is about realist and illusionary qualities, not character and plot. A preoccupation with the computer synthesis of realistic imagery was at the forefront of the minds of those who produced the film.
