Digital Effects Animation and the New Hybrid Cinema

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses and assesses the changes that contemporary cinema is seeing as the techniques and technology demonstrated in the animated films of Pixar increasingly migrate to and affect the world of live-action cinema. The lines between the two become increasingly blurred, and the very term animation seems to be taking on a whole new meaning. It looks at works that suggest the range of animation hybridity today, such as Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003).

Keywords: contemporary cinema; techniques; technology; animated films; Pixar; animation hybridity; Pirates of the Caribbean
