About this event

The BEAUTIFUL FRAME Animation, Video Games and Virtual Experience: Sport and the Artifice of Moving Image Media

Part of the ‘Beautiful Frame: Animation at the National Football Museum’ Exhibition in Manchester, this symposium brings together scholars of animation, games, VR, VFX, Visualisation and E-Sport to discuss the representation of sport. 

The keynote speakers are Mike O’Mahony (University of Bristol) and John O’Shea (National Science and Media Museum, Bradford) and the symposium includes a tour of the Exhibition by Professor Paul Wells (Animation Academy, Loughborough University). 

This ground breaking area of study seeks to assess the relationship between the real and the virtual in sport as a vehicle to address complex contemporary issues.
