This dissertation aims to study and deepen the understanding of Visual Development
and the way it is used towards storytelling.
In animated feature and short films every element is studied and created in order to
help the viewer understand the story. We will study concepts like color and light to
understand how they are used in order to create an emotional connection between the
animation and the viewer.
The animated film ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (1991) from Walt Disney studios will be
the test subject for this dissertation and we will analyze its visual elements to
understand the way they convey emotion and how those emotions connect to the
evolution of the story.
For the final project in computer animation, we propose to apply these findings
towards a better understanding on the matter of Visual Development. The visual
elements will be approached in the way they were idealized and studied in the preproduction
stage and in the way that they were executed in the production. We will
also establish their connection with the progression of storytelling.
