Animations are not a strictly-defined genre category, but rather a film technique, although they often contain genre-like elements. Also includes claymation (use of clay objects), anime (a style of animation with its roots in Japanese comic books, usually adult-oriented sci-fi and fantasy) or CGI (computer-generated animation). Animated films are often considered kids or family-oriented films, although they may be enjoyed by all ages.
