April 24th- Discord Discussion: Less Explored Genres of Animation

THIS WEEKEND!

Animation Resources Discord

Animation Resources is hosting monthly Discord parties on its Discord server. Join us the last Saturday of every month to participate in discussions and network with fellow artists from all over the world. The party starts at 4:30 pm (PDT) and the program begins at 5:30 pm.

THIS MONTH’S PROGRAM

Animation Genres

Our schedule of monthly programs under the banner Discord Discussions continues Saturday April 24th!

We’re used to seeing certain types of animation: funny animals, superheroes, princesses, anime, and so on. We’ve seen live actions films of every genre, but when have you ever seen an animated horror film? We know animation does comedy and action well, but we’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the medium’s potential in other genres. Join Animation Resources President Stephen Worth and Board Member Davey Jarrell this Saturday, April 24th, on Discord as they discuss the possibilities of animation in less explored genres. We’ll break down the techniques and impact of the animated horror film “Borley Rectory” as well as some 20th century Russian propaganda films. All of the films being discussed are in the current Reference Pack. Doors open at 4:30 PDT and the program starts at 5:30 PDT!
