The human eye and brain can only process 10 to 12 separate images per second, retaining an image for up to a fifteenth of a second. How many images can the eye and brain process during a 30 minute cartoon?
The kineograph was invented by John Linnett in the late 1800’s. Walt Disney is famous for creating cartoon illustrations, discuss how technology has effected the design of animations.
Cartoons can be a satirical or humorous drawing, and incorporate the study of language, including sociolinguistics (words used in social norms), and dialectology or regional differences in a language. Create a unique kineograph that reflects a specific cultural norm.
The animation works because of something known as the persistence of vision. Discuss how the brain and eye connect when viewing optical illusions.
Try adding sound effects to your animation, similar to the techniques used on a foley stage. Record and play back the finished animations during a special movie day with popcorn and credit lines.
