Lecture 7 – Mark Ingham
Optimus Prime: “There’s a thin line between being a hero and being a memory.”
This lecture was quite unique in comparison of to the other lectures we had so far. Again Mark Ingham gave us the lecture, but this time it was on Animated robots. Mark started the lecture by giving us advise on how to construct our essay. Then we were asked to tweet a message on twitter. The message was the answer to the question: what is my favourite animated robot? My answer was Bumblebee from transformers.
After that, Mark discussed about the first animations that existed, and what the meaning of animation was? I had formerly recorded the meaning of the word. The first animations founded in this world were through printed images. It was originated in Egypt. Furthermore, Mark then displayed a video of Bender from futurama.
Bumblebee is my favourite animated robot from Transformers. Ever since I was a child, I always thought Transformers was an amazing animation. Also how cars transform to robots. And wars between cars. I have watched every single animation episode and movies that are released. It’s about, The transformers live in planet of Cybertron , a war between the noble Autobots and the devious Decepticons.
Also my favourite quote from Transformers is when Optimus Prime says: “Before time began, there was the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time, we lived in harmony. But like all great power, some wanted it for good”.
