Paying more Page 1
The cost of everything is going up, we all know that.
The unfortunate part of an ailing economy is the price
we students must pay-in the form of increased
tuition bills. See this week's cover story for an in-
depth look at the rising cost of your education. Cover
by Jonathon Stewart.

Music lovers will not be short-changed this week,
what with Major Events offering a dash of jazzman
Chuck Mangione and Prism giving us a chance to
catch blues artist Albert Collins. Both acts come to
town this week, so for a sneak peek take a look
at these previews.

David Bowie makes his second flm appearance of
the year, only this time maybe he should have stayed
on the musical stage. His latest effort, Merry Christ-
mas, Mr. Lawrence, fails miserably according to this

The end may be near for XTC, but have no

Andrea Gomez
Performance Network
408 W. Washington
8 p.m., Friday October 7
By Crystal Duncan
THINK BACK over the years that
have shaped your life; years
responsible for your transformation in-
to the studious, responsible college
student that you are today. Think back
to that far away concept called
'recess' and into those blissful days of
total abandon (free of organic
chemistry), and recall that hardly a
Saturday passed without your presence
awaiting "Scooby Doo," or "Bugs Bun-
ny," at the television. Film animation,
cartoons being perhaps the most
recognizable form, is' present in all
aspects of the media.
Animation can be found coast-to-
coast: from Levi Strauss TV commer-
cials and Stars Wars movies in
Hollywood to a local animation
workshop right here in Ann Arbor. An-
drea Gomez, award-winning film
animator will bring her skills to the
Performance Network beginning today
at8 p.m.
Gomez has been making animated
films since 1972. She has successfully
produced award-winning films
penetrating the entire field of film
animation in which cartoon animation
is but a small segment. A graduate of
the Tylor School of Art at Temple
University, she received her bachelor's
degree in painting. While in college,
Gomez became an apprentice to a film
animator, which she describes as "a
lucky experience." It is here where she
first became intrigued with film
animation and gained most of her early
knowledge on the techniques involved
in the animation process.
Gomez affirms, "College is not the
place to learn animation," and her at-


Animation: A lost art

titude has certainly paid off - today
she is an internationally known film
animator. Her works include Ningun, a
dance film depicting the journey of
Adam and Eve from the Garden of
Eden, and Bus Stop, a subjective look at
a bus ride through a modern urban lan-
dscape. Both films have won awards at
the Ann Arbor Film Festival.
Specifically, the term animation is
defined as the movement of any two or
three dimensional object, figure, or
drawing, moving not by its own energy,
but by energy supplied for it. "Not only
does this include cartoon animation,"
emphasizes Gomez, "but object
animation, clay aniimation, sand

animation and human animation." All
of which can be done with basically a
camera, tripod, a set of lights and, of
course, imagination. The wonderful
thing about animation, she says en-
thusiastically, is that "every aspect of
it is something you control. From the
writing of it, to the drawing of it, to the
scoring of it. Every single aspect of film
animation is sort of your own little
universe. That's what I love about my
Currently, Gomez teaches film
animation in the speech department at
Wayne State University and at the Cen-
ter for Creative Studies. In addition,
she is an active member in the youth
program at the Detroit Institute of Arts
where she instructs young children in
the fundamentals of film animation.
She has worked extensively with
children during her years of in-
volvement with the institute and im-
mensely enjoys the creativity that
young children seem to naturally
possess. "Children are totally unjaded.
I can walk into a college class and
everybody will have read the technique
books of Star Wars and will try to flash
this stuff on me," she laughs. "Kids
come in and they are fantastic! They
are open to information, they are not
