animated documentary

Posted on February 2, 2012


A genre that combines documentary and animation techniques.

There are different approaches to the genre. An animated documentary may be:

  • documentary audio + realistic animation depicting the story told
  • documentary audio + non-realistic animation
  • documentary film + elements of animation
  • documentary film with its visual side re-done with a certain animation technique (example: 2008 – Waltz with Bashir)
