Slideshow: Students view films, try out animation at Film Archive
Eight undergraduates in the class, “Principles of Animation,” together with their instructor Ben Hagari, recently visited the newly renovated Yale Film Archive on the seventh floor of Sterling Memorial Library. After watching five animated films in their original 16 mm and a 3D film on Blu-ray, the students moved to the Film Archive’s conservation suite for a hands-on animation session with Brian Meacham, managing archivist.
“The Film Archive has been an amazing resource, allowing the class to engage with film material and the collection on first-hand experience,” Hagari said later. “It was a unique opportunity to watch experimental animations, create direct camera-less animations on film stock and then project it in the screening room, all in one session.”
