If we go to the root of the word animation, we touch on concepts such as soul, to animate, to give something a soul or life. Immediately, the image of a studio student giving life to a set of static drawings or a wooden puppet using older or newer technology may come to mind.
But it’s not just about bringing 2D or 3D objects to life. We see our work as part of our soul, our life. It is about modelling our own ideas, feelings and opinions. And last but not least, it is a mutual enlivenment, because even a short semestral work, for example, spiritualizes its author as well as (hopefully) its viewer.
