Disability community groups are given the same space to work in the world of animation. In fact, the abilities of disability circles provide wealth for animated works.
“The attention to detail of children with disabilities is needed in a work. We do not limit disability children to join us, “said Eric Hanson, visual effects designer and animation teacher from the University of Southern California at Widyatama University’s Faculty of Visual Communication Design (DKV) on Jl. Cikutra, Kota Bandung, Monday 5 February 2018 .
Hanson said “The attention to detail of children with disabilities is needed in a work. We do not limit disability children to join us,”
According to Hanson, answering one of the questions of students with disabilities, on campus there are many children with disabilities who join. Their differences, said Hanson, actually did not produce mediocre works.
Accuracy of disability among details is very much needed in the world of animation. Hanson mentions wide open opportunities. “Don’t be afraid to learn and spill creativity in the world of animation,” Hanson said.
Hanson is a designer of visual effects with a focus on creating digital environment for VR and film. His works are with well-known visual effects studios such as Digital Domain, Sony Imageworks, Dream Quest Images, and Walt Disney Feature Animations.
Hanson’s works can be seen in films such as “The Day After Tomorrow”, “Cast Away”, “Mission to Mars”, “Fantasia 2000”, and “The Fifth Element”.
The city of Bandung is the first city of 17 places that Hanson will visit. Hanson acknowledged, this was the first time he had visited Indonesia.
In his presentation, Hanson mentioned the film lecture facilities at the University of Southern California. According to him, when teaching in large classes, he met with many students from various countries. He also studied the culture of his students.
“I don’t understand and know the culture of their place of origin, but I help them tell their culture through films in my class,” he said.
Hanson hopes that there will be more young people interested in film school. Later they will give birth to inspiring films. Hanson believes, film is a tool to unite differences.
