The animation industry has advanced rapidly. This art form has surpassed all expectations, becoming a respected and accomplished art form despite its association with children's TV. However, animation has affected more than just the film industry. It has impacted more people than you may have ever realized.
Here are some industries that have been influenced by animation:
Short animated films are used frequently in the medical profession. They are most commonly used as an instrumental tool for medical professionals or their patients in order to explain how a complicated procedure will or should be carried out.
With the development of VR technology, animation is being used more frequently in everyday teaching practices too. Soon, we can expect to see classrooms full of children in VR headsets, learning through animated worlds.
In October 1958, William Higinbotham created what is considered to be the first video game. Using animation technology, he created the classic 70s video game Pong. As animation has developed, so has the striking visuals in games.
Architectural animations are short animated movies created on a computer. Professionals often find it difficult to explain the complexities and spatial qualities of large projects without computer generated visual aids. Therefore, to solve this issue, they combine hundreds or even thousands of computer generated images.
In a world where marketing is key, using animation has allowed companies to convey messages and explain concepts in a cost-effective and visually appealing way.
From black and white screens and hand-drawn animations, to CGI in films, TV shows, music videos and even news, the industry is constantly evolving and developing new forms of entertainment.
