The Animation Archive at UCA

Library and student services at UCA are pleased to announce their new management of the Animation Archive at UCA

The collection includes the Halas & Batchelor digital collection; the archive of the internationally renowned Animator, Bob Godfrey (who started the Animation course at the West Surrey College of Art and Design), including his Oscar winning production, Great, his children’s animation, Henry’s Cat and never before realised Animation, Such as Jumbo, The Elephant You’ll Never forget, ; and also the contemporary collections donated by Daniel Greaves (with artwork from the animation Simon’s Cat), Jo Wonder and Kristian Andrews.

With records such as storyboards, scripts, animation cels, and correspondence, providing an insight into the design process, the archive explores a wide range of themes such as gender, politics and satire (such as Margaret Thatcher, Where am I Now?, circa 1999, which was a collaborative project with Steve Bell the political cartoonist), propaganda, and sex and satire.
