This is my first post on this forum.
I'm a Fine Art student in England who has decided to write his dissertation on the subject of animation. My research question or thesis is initially going to be 'Is animation a viable medium for exploring real-world themes?'
Does anyone have any advice on books or any other resources that cover the theme of animation that deals with realistic themes, or about the psychology of caricature... is there something inerrant in the caricatured form that makes it 'childlike'?
Thanks for reading,
