This exciting new course will study the early history of animation and make working machines that trace the unique hands-on progress of early animators. We will storyboard, draw, paint, and then move on to making thaumatropes, phenakitoscopes, zoetropes, and flipbooks. These will be geared, motorized, and battery-operated to work autonomously.
