‘Animated Interjections: The use of animation in documentary’ talk by Bella Honess Roe

Up coming talk by academic and fellow blogger Bella Honess Roe – one not to miss!

‘Animated Interjections: The use of animation in documentary’
Monday 28th January
AUB campus
Room F102
4.30pm

In her forthcoming book Animated Documentary (Palgrave, 2013), Bella Honess Roe examines the convergence of animation and documentary and how animation functions as a representational strategy in nonfiction film and television. In this talk she will discuss the use of brief animated sections in otherwise live-action documentary, addressing the purpose of such animated interjections.

Bella Honess Roe gained her PhD in Critical Studies from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts in 2009. Her PhD thesis, entitled Animating Documentary, is on the epistemological and phenomenological implications of the convergence of animation and documentary. She also holds an MA in Critical Studies from USC and a BA in Philosophy from the University of Cambridge. Between her BA and MA Bella spent six years working in the film industry in Los Angeles and London, including roles in the development departments at Lakeshore Entertainment (Los Angeles), MGM (Los Angeles), and Granada Film (London). Subsequently, she tutored writers and script editors on screenwriting workshops in Italy, Australia and
New Zealand. More recently, she worked with the non-profit London- based DocHouse, an organisation devoted to the promotion and exhibition of independent UK and international documentary film.
