Feature Film

History of Animated Features Chart

Designers Bill Younker and Larry Gormley have created a series of “information art prints” which they sell on their site, History Shots. Their latest info-graphic (by Gormley, below) chronicles the entire history of feature films from the 1910s until the present day (“2000 films, 20 genres, 100 years“). At the very top is a layer of animated films, for which the criteria for inclusion was that the feature has either “won important awards such as the best picture Academy Award; achieved critical acclaim according to recognized film critics; are considered to be key genre films by experts; and/or attained box office success”.
