Exhibit: Animate It

Sit in the Director’s chair, arrange your set and start shooting your scene.  You can make a twelve-frame animated film.  The TV camera will take up to 12 pictures (shots) and store them on the computer’s memory.  The pictures can then be shown in sequence on the monitor screen, and at different speeds.  A scene is set up using small plastic models.  Animated pictures are made by slightly shifting each model and taking a picture (shot) after each movement.  When the pictures are shown rapidly in sequence, the illusion of continuous movement is produced.
