animation facts and myths


Overgeneralising is a quick way to get yourself into trouble these days. Try to summarise a political party by using a single politician as an example, and people around you will quickly see your ignorance is showing.

When it comes to the medium of animation, there are enough toxic myths and generalisations floating around to choke a dolphin. But choke no more, my tuna-safe friends, because today we’re looking at four common myths about animation and the truths that will, hopefully, prevent you from becoming a punched-in-the-face-ignoramus.
