Animation & Character Briefing

Today I have had the Animation & Character briefing with a slight overview about what animation is and what it can consist of. I was given a peice of paper with a template of what is known as a 'Eadweard Muybridges Phenakistoscope' layout.

The Phenakistoscope uses a spinning disc attached vertically to a handle and placed around the disc's center were a series of drawings show the phases of the animation. The viewer can see it through a series of equally spaced vertical slits.

Here is my short animation of a balloon expanding and then popping.

Here is an exsisting example from Eadweard Muybridge of the images laid out facing the outer rim of the circle created in 1893. Each image is different so when the image is spun all we see is a moving picture.
