Nguyen, Cam Van ; VANDAS, Martin (advisor) ; DĚCKÁ, Eliška (referee)
Animated documentary film is relatively a new genre, which is presently growing and becoming more popular. Simple definition of this genre is animated film with standard elements taken from documentary films. There is true confession, emotional strength, and unlimited borders, which animation provides. This growing sub-genre of animated film is asking existential questions. How does this kind of animated documentary film usually look? Almost everytime it is a topic of the stories from the real world, for example: topics of human rights, topics exceptional but also universal, which can be very easy to identify. This thesis is specifically focuses on the topic of personal confessions, that tell their own story. I also had to deal with this topic when I was doing my bachelor animated documentary film and at the end of it I summarize it with my personal evaluation and experiences.

Autobiographical elements in animated films of Czech female directors
Děcká, Eliška ; Hanáková, Petra (advisor) ; Laučíková, Ivana (referee)
This MA thesis analyses the use of autobiographical elements in animated films of contemporary female directors. The thesis employs data obtained from in-depth interviews with eight individual directors. As the main methodological tool for conducting these I used oral history. These data were further combined with the gender-specific textual analysis and interpretation of their films, regarding the main principles of animations studies. The goal was to reach a conclusion whether there is any inclination towards the use of autobiographical elements in animated films of Czech female directors. The thesis also contemplates the potential of animation studies in general and its effective use in connection with other academic disciplines. This approach leads towards obtaining findings, outreaching the mere sphere of animation and that may be enriching in the context of political-economic transformation after 1989 in Czechoslovakia/Czech Republic, for example. Keywords: animated film, autobiography, animation studies, gender, political-economic transformation after 1989.
Erotica in a puppet animated film
Žák, Vojtěch ; DĚCKÁ, Eliška (advisor) ; Vaněček, Matěj (referee)
Eroticism and pornography in animated puppet film is a niche genre. Nevertheless, it deserves attention for its unique means of expression. The subject matter of this thesis is a reflection on the relationship between corporeality and the puppet in film. It also includes selected auteur independent films and their analysis, in which sexual behavior is the prevalent topic or which contain explicit erotic scenes. The puppet functions as a representation of human body; specifically, within the context of this thesis, of the body in erotic situations. The body of the puppet becomes a representation of our own body. With the emergence of new technologies, we can become a representation of the puppet, which in turn becomes a puppeteer, an animator. The principle of identification with the main protagonist is essential for interpretation of the role and function of the puppet in film. One of the key instruments of interpretation of the role of the puppet in film and understanding its function in film. The chosen theme is accompanied by definitions of key terms and a brief overview of legislation concerning pornographic animated film.
