72 dpi- Anime explores the dynamic world of moving images. Showcasing and analysing the surprising variety and promise of animation in its broadest sense - from traditional camera work via Flash animations to modern source code manipulation - the book displays remarkable variety in more than 150 projects between design and art, experiment and commerce, eccentricity and narration, video clip and web site, San Francisco and Tokyo in picture, text and on DVD 9.
Innovators such as Matt Anderson, Hi-Res and Büro Destruct play with linearity and combine all sorts of media, techniques and disciplines into new formats that previously had found no adequate outlet.
Instead of dry theoretical treatises the print section of 72 dpi Anime does not focus on the re-narration of scenic incidents, but draws out poignant project details and stylistic features as an introduction and supplement to the videos and applications featured on the DVD, divided into the sections Camera, Vector, Interactive, Linear and Motion Graphics.
72 dpi Anime, in its fusion of progressive approaches, aesthetics and attitudes, is therefore both a comprehensive locator and catalyst for creative processes in motion graphics, internet and analogue design.
