Motion pictures and animations are actually still images viewed in rapid succession to create the illusion of motion. Flipbooks offer a fun, hands-on experience accessible to even the youngest students that demonstrates how moving pictures are made. Using index cards, students learn how to create an animation by drawing a sequence of images that change slightly from frame to frame, and then flipping them rapidly to accomplish the illusion.
Professional animation terminology is included in the activity.
Included in this module:
- One Instructor's Guide for leading a Flipbook activity
- Four sample Flipbooks along with their animated GIFS.
*This is one module from the ten-module Digistars® Stop Motion Animation Production 101 Curriculum.*
