'Exploring Frame Rates in Relation to Perception and Narrative'

Frame rate has always been a vital element of animation in conveying action and showcasing movement. In their dissertation, Eneh aims to investigate how varying frame rates affect narrative and audience perceptions through the creation of an animated short depicting a personal journey. Having created two versions of the animation: one with a fixed frame rate and another with a varying frame rate, audience reactions were documented on which version of the animation proved more effective at conveying the narrative. Eneh’s dissertation aims to relay the results of this research.
