Animation: Knowledge or Trade?
In lieu of the usual Monday list post, I thought it would be interesting to debate whether or not animation is a knowledge or trade-based form of education.
What I mean is, in life you generally have two forms of education: knowledge-based and the more vocational trade-based. The difference between the two is that one is taught primarily in a classroom and based on theory whereas the other one favours a more hands-on approach and acquiring knowledge through practice.
- Does animation fall primarily into one or the other?
- Do different types of animation fall into either one?
- Is there an emphasis on one to the detriment of the other?
- Would animation education improve if things were changed?
I’m curious to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment below! 🙂
