The project regarding this thesis is an attempt to render different aspects of Turkish circumcision traditions as much as possible. And while representing these customs, it also aims to depict the psychological effects of circumcision on a child and the fear of circumcision by using 3D and 2D computer animation. Thesis first tries to explain the history of male circumcision by answering questions such as, when and how it had originated, what are the different traditions and why is it still being performed, to provide a basis for circumcision traditions in Turkey. In addition to history of circumcision, psychological effects of circumcision on a child will also be discussed. Also to be able to establish a better understanding on ways of representing fear and horror in animation, the place of horror genre in mainstream animation is going to be examined. At last, paper will try to relate discussion on representation of horror in animation and discussion on psychological effects of circumcision, by exploring the short animation Pilav.
