Anymation is an interesting concept from Tom Jantol that describes all kinds of digital animation made with any tool. From animation film, to games, from web animation, to performance animation.

“Anymation is an exciting concept, because its adoption could forge new lines of communication and collaboration between its different children: machinima, digital puppetry, digital comics and graphic novels, stop-motion photography, digital painting, traditional CGI, and so on. These children of Anymation need not lose their identities or obliterate their own definitions. Indeed, Anymation functions best with a very heterogeneous collective of crafts and tools, each with their own identity, and each with the potential to contribute to making an Anymation idea a reality. ”
