Contextual Studies : Essay : Animation Studios and their Inspirations


UFOtable :

Breif sum up and history .

Normally under the ‘Unlimited Budget’ joke that many people take as fact.  though this is largely not true , this is still believed due to the quality of there work like FATE ZERO among others. This studio was formed in the October of 2000 by former staff members of  TMS entertainment ,the company itself is a Japanese animation company and is held under a rather high regard from its fans , this comes back to the ‘Unlimited budget ‘ reference earlier , lots of fans see the quality of there work and state it was due to this though in reality it was just the product of very talented people and organisation working behind the scenes to create the shows they love . The shows are almost totally created in house unlike many of the similar studios .

The inspirations behind the studio are



Disney animations are a world famous for there high quality and their appeal to all audiences no matter the age. Unlike studio UFOtable its a western animation company and has been around for a lot longer . They practically wrote the book on animation .Disney have created an amazing amount of animations that that are known by so many people .This popularity is mostly is mostly due to how long Disney have been around and people have grown up with it just because of how long its been around for .Disney Animated Studios have also probably had the highest grossing animated features out of all of these names in the industry . With the likes of Frozen ,Tangled and any of the Animated Films that were produced in the Disney Renaissance .

This however says nothing about what actually inspired its creation in the first place and what drove its creator . Unsurprisingly  the Creator of the Studio is the Walt Disney , Its Popular belief that the reason that he created the studio was to make children smile . This was of course was a half truth ,at the time the market for a children entertainment was pretty much untapped for a man like Walt he would of seen this and saw an opportunity and took it with not one reason being the only culprit.


Rooster Teeth Animation

A rather young animation studio compared to the rest of the studios , they have made works likes RWBY , Camp Camp and Red vs Blue  . This animation studio is really new compared to the others in the fact that is has only been around for a couple years as being founded in 2014 , Originally  Monty Oum was the head of the department until his unfortunate death in 2015 .

The Reason for its creation was to expand Roosterteeths ability to make animated project other then their at the the time mostly live action one like Immersion or the Roosterteeth Podcast. Other than Red vs Blue there wasn’t really any shows that needed animation or could make use of the scattered animators available talent  that was present till the formation of this department of the company in doing so they began to create animated shows that have been pretty well received by fans more so that most over shows creating things more along the lines fo cult followings for some of them for example RWBY .

The Inspirations behind the Animation behind a lot of the shows they produce most notability in Red vs Blue and RWBY is the action , this action has mostly been animated by Monty the Head of the head of the department. Not that much is known as of writing about the rest of the studio but it is known where Monty took a lot of his inspirations from notability old martial arts films and how the scenes were portrayed . This lead to really impressive Visuals during the battle scenes produced by Monty and its really easy to tell what he has worked on as a result


A1 Pictures

This is a Japanese studio that produces an abundances of animated features in fact among their surrounding community they are notorious for it .This animation quality is questionable due to the amount they produce so they have to keep things streamlined so the animations normally consist of appealing illustrations with minimal animations with bursts of concentrated  movement when needed . They are also notorious for their possibly poor working conditions though this is apparently not the reality of how they operate , they operate mostly by handing the majority of the animation to contract animators that have no direct connection to themselves .


Laika Entertainment

Laika is a stop motion focused studio , again a rather young studio comparatively to most of the ones I’ve talked about so far . Its first feature animated film was in 2009 in the form of  Coraline , so far the other things this studio has produced is high quality and high budget stop motion films .
