Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation V3

Here is the third and final version of the Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation:

Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation V2

Corrections: According to people the way I have shown the important date with symbols on the timeline are not easy to understand, so I have fixed this by placing the names of all the important events, people, products and inventions that are on the timeline with a decent font that is easy to read and understand. This in turn will allow people to identify which symbols mean which event, person, invention, movie etc.

The link below is to look at all the research and reasons why I chose theses Events, People, Inventions and Movies etc.

The reason I why I chose to present the information I gathered for the History and Role and Scope of Animation in this form of animation is for several reasons. My first reason is that is makes the information placed on the Timeline is to find as well as understandable but this is only due to the fact that it is not only to see but I had to go through several attempts after reviews with a few people that I both knew and didn’t know. Which is were several of the corrections come into such as the Key and shortening the actual timeline at the end because noting that I have seen or looked up so far in this decade I can see as a importance to the History and Role and Scope of Animation. The Second reason why I chose this style to present my information is due to the fact that the combination of the imagery and colours makes the animation noticeable and draws in the attention of the target audience as well as it displays the actual events quite effectively once the correction had been made on this version.

Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation V2 Final

Here is the finished version of my Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation.

Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation

Corrections: Length has been shorten due to the fact that the actual Timeline and Role and Scope went up to 2015 but needed to be cut back because of only a few things in this decade been of importance to the history of Animation so far. The Fonts have been enlarge and aligned due to the fact that they were all over the place as well as the font not all been readable so the size needed to be enlarged.

Mistakes: According to people the way I have shown the important date with symbols on the timeline are not easy to understand, so to fix this I am going to place the name of all the important events, people, products and inventions that are on the timeline with a decent font that is easy to read and understand.

Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation V1

Here is the final version of Animation Timeline and Role and Scope:

Animation Timeline

Mistakes: The first attempt of the Timeline and Role and Scope of Animation according to both my self and the people I have shown stated that the Timeline needs to be cut down near the end due to the fact that I haven’t marked any events yet that are considered important to this decade so far so I either need to cut the end off or fill it in. I also need to enlarge and align the font due to the fact that the actual font is too small making it hard for to read and identify the time period. The font needs to be aligned due to the fact that it makes the actual timeline look neater and more professional.

Timeline Research 1914 – 1945: World War Propaganda

Now the reason why I chose this period for the Timeline and the Role and Scope is because it is one of the beats example of animation during the early 20th Century, this is due to the fact that the style of animation during this period varies and some of the variation are very interesting and can be consider pioneers or inspirations for various styles that we use for today for everyday things. Propaganda has been around for centuries, in fact the term originates from the Roman Catholic Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of Faith, the first official war Pro was produced in the 1914 after the assassination of the archduke of Austria. The aim of propaganda is to attract the attention of the target audience by using unique or distinctive features as well as colours to do so and once the attention of the target audience he propaganda shows the facts and information the creators or desired party wants the target audience to see, often the information on the propaganda can either be complete lies, half truths of the complete truth but is often made to make the desired party look good and the rival party bad.

Here are a few excellent example of how the styles can vary between each other and how they affect the message of the propaganda. For example both images are attempt at recruiting people into the British Militia but how each piece of Propaganda does it is different, the first image does this by displaying fairly accurate images of men and women in military equipment and they are marching into battle. They are also wearing colours that are also eye catching but at the same time represent Britain in some way i.e. the green is similar to British green. The next image focuses on use the sense of patriotism to draw in new recruits by using the British Flag as a means to do so with the big bold words Britishers Enlist to Day. This is marked on the Role and Scope as a means of communication. This is important to the role and scope due to the fact that it is one of the most famous but also key moments within the history of animation due to the fact that it in a sense is one of the very first professional means to draw the attention of people without threatening means and is a marking point in the timeline because it has a wide range of art styles that range of from it in different kinds of advertisement and info graphics.

Time Line Research 3500BC – 400CE: Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs

Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs were a combination of logo-graphic and alphabetic symbols used to create a form of formal writing as a means of communication. There are other versions of the Hieroglyphics but they are not consider to be the same due to the fact that they are slightly different then the original version, which in it’s formal form was written in curved style and was written on papyrus and wood.

The two informal styles are called Hieratic and Demotic. This is helpful to the Timeline and Role and Scope due to the fact that it one of most important developments of not only Humans communication but also animation due to the fact that it uses a large ranges of imagery, shapes and colours to form the means of communication. Therefor this on the role and scope would have one symbol which is represented by the Communication symbol. This is important not only because of it been a means of communication but because it is one of the very uses of shapes and colours recorded in human history and is classed as a unique style of art because of this and this therefor means that it is a important factor that cannot be ignored.

Although technically this wouldn’t have possible to understand if the Rosetta Stone hadn’t been found, which meant that mankind wouldn’t have been able to translate various ancient languages. Like all ancient means of communication their are universal symbols that we understand even without translating, in fact most languages can be tracked back to the prehistoric period were cave paintings were used as the means of communication.

Timeline Research 1985: Dire Straights “Money for Nothing”

Money For Nothing was a music piece that was produced by the band Dire Straights, the music video that was produced for this song includes animation, in fact because of this  it was the first music videos to include animation ever and was a starting point for other music videos to start including Animations.

This is classed as music on the Timeline and Role and Scope due to the fact that it was the very first animated music video in the history of animation making it a important moment in the history of animation as well as a keep influence in many animated music video for the past decade.

Animation Timeline 32,985 BC: Cave Painting

One of the Earliest forms of animation recorded within History, the first recorded Cave painting is said to be at least 35,000 years old and is believed originate from Africa. This is consider animation due to the fact that it is not only one of the very first recorded art pieces in history but is also tells a story with more then one image e.g. bulls been recorded on the walls of caves to show which direction they where herded by prehistoric man.

This video explains the history of the earliest recorded cave painting.

Cave Paintings Documentary

Cave Paintings Imagery

This form of animation is used for several century’s until we started to develop a more sophisticated means of communication that involved both words and means of animation.

The reason why this is one the history of animation is due to the fact that it is one of man kinds earliest forms of communication and was the starting point of mankind’s art, what I mean by that is this early form of communication is an art form that uses simple imagery to show what one person wants to another so the image above shows the size of one of the buffalo a group of cave men hunted.
