Animation. It’s the medium where great stories are told and yet how does it work? In this class, we take a look behind the scenes to learn that it is an illusion of motion created through a series of still images shown in quick progression.
We broke down an animated clip of a bouncing ball into its component frames, or snapshots, to observe what exactly is happening at a particular moment. Applying what we learned, we each made our own flipbooks, creating our own animated stories from scratch.
