Everything related to animation, whether it is just a whistling mouse, a walking dinosaur, or a leaping superhero, is a kind of magic trick played with our minds. They are originally static, but we see an amazing presentation on our screens. The concept is actually to show the fantasy and imaginary world, all moving, to entertain us.
With the continuous advancements in the digital world, we have already come so far. From the times when we used to keep our favorite things saved in diaries to the point when we have everything in one app, we’ve transformed our living styles. Therefore, team FAYVO introduces you to the good stuff around you. From Netflix Originals to holiday-themed movies and the best places to visit in the world, we’ve got everything for your entertainment and fun. But this, we are here with some great and revolutionary breakthroughs in film history. Let’s see how the industry has evolved:
First Primetime Animated Television Show
Hanna-Barbera brought our favorite characters into our homes, all through the screens. They had their impressive catalog of television shows. In the 1950s, they got the Emmy award for their work on The Huckleberry Hound Show. Later on, they pushed great hits one after the other. It was their work in the mid-'90s that truly changed the idea of animation. The Flintstones for ABC was the first-ever primetime animated show that added more to the imagination. Later on, The Simpsons followed the same scheme, but The Flintstones had the perfect blend of stone age comedy and 1960s family life. The Jetsons, as well as other animated hits like Johnny Quest and Scooby-Doo, Where are You!
Adding Colors into Sketches
There’s nothing wrong with a black and white film, as long as it has a good storyline and great visuals. After all, last year’s Oscar winner for best film was also filmed in black and while. It was, The Artist. The award proved that black and white films can still be the best ones and can depict emotions on a very balanced scale. But, with time, the animation industry got colors, not only because it gave the ability to mimic life more realistically than ever before, but it also attracted people towards the screens.
While the current 3D technology provides us with a more immersive, exciting film experience, getting the help of virtual reality is adding a cherry on the top. Since the use of Virtual Reality, t's possible to create a finished product that utilizes full 360° recording to allow us to watch films the same way we see the natural world. Along with the positive impact, this technology has a downside too. Not everyone can tolerate a virtual reality environment for the length of the average feature film.
The Multiplane Camera
Previously, the entire animation was built using a one-dimensional camera. That way, movies took longer to complete, and it was harder to display the depths and features using that technology. To move ahead, Walt Disney (and his team led by William Garity) made a new machine that dubbed the multiplane camera. This new device uses a series of glass panes with individual elements painted on them. The camera was fixed on the top of all the glass planes. Multiple photos were taken this way, and it created a three-dimensional world in which elements in the foreground would move separately from those in the background. The Old Mill first used and tested this device in 1937. The multiplane camera helped in featuring realistic depictions of animals and weather, as well as complex lighting and color effects.
