Tangled appeals to 2-D and 3-D movie goers

on Monday,November 29,2010 21:11


Animation has come a long way since the days of two-dimensional (2-D) cartoon movies. Disney's new film, Tangled, proves that three-dimensional (3-D) glasses may be enough to bring families together at the theater.

Last week, Tangled premiered at the box office, putting a new spin on the old tale of Rapunzel. Unlike other 3-D films, such as Toy Story 3, animators decided to take a more reserved approach to their designs. The graphics were eye-catching, but had a classical hand-drawn feel, according to Cinema Blend. The animators also wanted to make sure the film would still be engaging in 2-D - a common problem among other movies that have been specifically designed for 3-D.

Overall, critic Katey Rich concluded that Tangled had been developed with a significant amount of concentration on the audience. Three-dimension supervisor, Robert Newman, fine-tuned intricate details to make sure viewers have a full scope of the eye-popping effects. Frames were designed to run at a slow pace in order to prevent the audience from feeling nauseous.

As 3-D animation continues to evolve, film producers are learning more about how to create motion pictures to cater to the audience. Animator jobs are predicted to increase by 14 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
