Here are the GIFs we watched in the video (Don’t forget to hit your browser’s back button to return to this page!):


Here is the thaumatrope that shows ‘fusion.’ (More on that another day!)

And here’s a really cool site that will tell you everything you want to know about how the eyes work with the brain!

KEEP IN MIND… You do NOT have to use GIFMob. If you already have a way to shoot and assemble your animation, by all means, use that. GIFMob is just for those of you who have no other way to shoot and assemble. Next week, we’ll go over alternate ways to put your animation together, but, again… if you already have programs/apps that you like and know how to use… do that! And, no, GIFMob isn’t paying me to promote their app. I just think it’s one of the easiest to use if you’ve never animated before. Plus… it’s FREE!

  1. I’ll upload them to YouTube tomorrow and link to them from this page. I got videopress because it was supposed to be better bandwidth. Thank you for letting me know!

  2. I subscribed one year Adobe entire program. But there are so many softwares. I don’t know which one I should pick for do the assignment? Where can I find a tutorial on how to use that software? Do you have link? Thanks! Mei Wu

  3. It’s really interesting to learn more about the history of animation and some techniques that were used in the earliest stages. Looking forward to learn more.
