Media Arts - Introduction to Video

Students began to learn about what the magic is behind video and film. Do the terms "Motion Pictures" really mean that the pictures themselves are moving? The notion of motion pictures simply is that when the eye sees slightly different images in a quick succession, our brain interprets this to be animation. Each individual image is stationary but the quick viewing of them as a whole makes it appear as though animation exists.

We discussed the theories behind this and also why film and video look different. This is largely due to the frame rates of each medium. Below, view Evan's work. I asked him to draw us an example while we were discussing this and he came up with a cute little animation to demonstrate this theory. Enjoy!
