Animation is a sequence of images that create motion. The first film containing a sequence of images was the ‘The Enchanted Drawing’ (1900) directed by J.Stuart Blackton it is essentially a silent film with stop motion animation. Below is a direct link to the video on YouTube.
As part of our task we need to create a 12 frame looped sequence then make it into a gif. Before this I researched the Zoetrope. The viewer of the zoetrope looks through the slits on the cylinder, then when the zoetrope is spun the user can see each image blur together giving the viewer the sense of motion.
