|a"Clay animator Mark Sawicki examines the fundamental principles of animation by demonstrating the persistence of vision phenomenon by way of the Thoumatrope, Zoetrope and Flip book. The viewer is then introduced to the history of motion picture technology and the evolution of frame rates in film and video. Mark goes on to discuss the concept of resolution in film formats and digital files. A consumer digital camera is set up and used for several animation exercises. Mark shows how to plan out and time the animation of a toy truck and also demonstrates how to plot animation curves in order to achieve smooth animation...an enjoyable primer for novice animators the world over."--Container.
