PhD in Computer Animated Films and Cartoons, King's College London

My research develops an approach to computer-animated films that elaborates upon their unique visual currencies and formal attributes, reconceptualised and organised as a generic framework that supports their status as a new genre of contemporary cinema. Informed by focused textual analysis, the determining features of the computer-animated film genre are located within areas of cinephilia and intertextuality, anthropomorphism, junk art, the Western tradition of performing objects, film sound theory, narrative literary theory, and Mannerist art.
