Animation or Dance Film?

A new year awaits..tho I have learned that in Scotland Jan 11th used to be the new years beginning. Until the Julian calendar was replaced by the Gregorian one.
My task this year is clear. To make a film. I have been asked a number of times if I am making a dance film or an animation and this opens a debate. It is a dance film that I set out to make when I first decided to do masters. My film will contain sosem animation but it is a film about movement and emotion and the mind of Norman Mclaren. But this debate will continue no doubt through the creative process. It has helped to continue the discussion with people in a variety of disciplines.
