Moving Image Activities

These activities are designed to demystify the illusion of motion. All types of moving image devices—from simple flipbooks to motion picture film—operate on a basic set of principles. By making your own motion-picture devices, you will learn how our eyes perceive motion where there is only a series of still images.
