Re-animating Theory is a project aimed at addressing an underlying problem in the academic setting, especially in regards to undergraduate students. A lack of enthusiasm and engagement with the required theory reading. The notion of presenting information in a digestible and entertaining fashion, it is hoped that this will allow students to synthesise the critical themes addressed, and extrapolate the information they have learned, into their own projects. As stated in the project proposals original documentation, “Recognising that the contemporary student is cine-literate we want to see if animating sections of theory helps students access the material and whether it helps them to synthesise the critical themes addressed there with their practical projects. The purpose of the animation is to explain and communicate key terms” [Brownie, Lees-Maffei, & Velody. 2017:01].
