Animation is an art form; NOT a genre![edit]

There have been a lot of people who say that animation is a medium, but Wikipedia here puts in as a genre of film, but animation is not a genre; Hollywood just treats it like that. That's why I've been taking out of film and TV genres categories or pages because it's NOT a genre. There are plenty of people I know who hate seeing animation being called a genre (Brad Bird is a good example). Animation Historian Jerry Beck said "It's an art form. But Hollywood treats it as a genre". Also, TV Tropes lists animation as a medium. You know what's a genre? Fantasy and comedy. Those ARE genres that animation, film and comics can do very well. Why? Because they're mediums; art forms, if you will. So please, can we take animation out of film genres? --Joseph1357 (talk) 20:02, 25 September 2013 (UTC)Joseph1357, September 25, 2013, 3:02 PM CT
