Netflix?

Film = 24 fps (usually)
Video = 29.97 fps (round up to 30)

Old time ‘flickers’ ran at about 18 fps (depending on the artistry of the projectionist)

Netflix is derived from:

Net = Internet
flix = flickers

Inspirational!

Shooting on 2’s and what the heck does that mean?
24 frames of film = 12 drawings, thus two frames per image = shooting on 2’s

Bring in your darkened zoetrope animations (we will view them first thing!). AND! Bring in 50 (or more) flipbook drawings to learn iStopmotion or Dragonframe 2.0 (and to see your super cool animations!).
