Let me share with you a little something that I came across. One of of the scenes in my new, as of yet untitiled book had me thinking about the old spinning toys where the animation appears to move. I didn't know what they were called and after a quick google search found the name: the Zoetrope. It is an amazing device, where literally the spinning pictures come to life. I never had one as a child, but am still facinated as an adult.
On that note, I will let the video, and an amazing BAFTA winning animator do the talking.
