Animated film has unlimited potential for portraying events, forms, and locations that bear only a vague resemblance to our experience of the "real" world. Using a wide range of techniques, the makers of animated films are able to create fantastical, paradoxical, and even downright impossible settings. They thus help to expand our understanding of the relationship between space, time, and place. This book brings together material on 26 films, showing both work processes and results.
