Bouncing Ball Assignment


BOUNCING BALL CYCLE:
This is animation that works continuously when looped (like the phenakistiscope!).

Watch and study this simple GIF-
bouncing_ball_cycle

Now animate a bouncing ball (8-12 drawings, only) in a ‘cycle.’ Use any paper and drawing materials you want. Or you may use a tablet/stylus (if you already have one).

The purpose is to make a cycle of animation so that when looped, it goes on forever and ever. Don’t worry if you do this wrong (especially if it’s your first time animating). We learn from our mistakes… so either way- it’s all good!
