Animating History 

a zoetrope edition

This project consisted of creating a timeline. I chose to represent the evolution and history of animation through a zoetrope, a hollow drum that spins and makes images appear to move. This decision was based on the fact that a zoetrope is a very important part of animation history, as it was the first method for creating animation.

Animating History shows a dancing clown, reminiscent of the dancing clown in HUMOROUS PHASES OF FUNNY FACES ,the first animated film, and the clown in Fantasmagorie ,the first animation ever.
