This master's thesis is a research on the field of short animated film, focusing on design of his artistic expression.
In theoretical part, we are searching for definition of artistic expression and discovering how can we design the most appropriate one for our short film. Animated film is a very specific art field. If we are working in this field we have to learn both fine art and film language. This thesis is a research of them both, their mutual relationship and their influence on final expression of the film.
In second part we explain the process of creating our short animated film Vrvohodec on the basis of previously studied art and film theory. We go throught the whole process of the film making, from the idea, script, animatic, storyboard to drawing, animating, montage and sound. Of course with a focus on design of his artistic expression.
