Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Animation has a long history, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the latest computer animation. Silent film had an enormous importance for the creation of a comic style animation and also for the study of the basic principles of animation, which today are used by professional animators. It was in 1930 that Walt Disney Studios animators created the twelve principles of animation. These principles are now the basis for all animators. This dissertation aims tomake an analysis ofthese twelve principles in order to focus on the principle of anticipation, and develop a deeper analysis it. Anticipation for an animator, whose main function is to guide the viewer to what he thinks will happen, will happen through different rhythms and exaggeration of actions that make a simple situation exciting and also comical. This thesis aims to study the anticipation in3D animatedfilms for two reasons: because it is an emerging cinematic style and because the final project was developed in 3D. It is intended that at the end of the thesis, the reader knows what the role of anticipation in the animation process of a 3d animated film is.
