Horse Hooves, Paintingsand How Movies Work
Anyone can get their hands on a camcorder. They’re simple to use. Hitthe red button, record some footage, download the video, click play,and there’s Uncle Bob singing karaoke at Aunt Clarissa’s 50th birthdayparty.Later, you join a video chat with the family in Indiana and send themthe video, so they can laugh too.We’re surrounded by movies. Internet video, TV programs, Dvds,video games, even roadside billboards grab drivers with moving images.We’re so accustomed to watching life on screens that the weirdness hasbeen lost. The biggest obstacle to understanding stopmotion is found in ourpreconceived notions about movies. People nd stopmotion di cult tograsp because they think they understand how movies work.

Wires? Greenscreen? CGI?
When people see toys, models, and impossible things come to life,movies become weird again. The audience thinks the creators usedspecial eects, invisible wires, computerized 3D models, or maybethey erased their ngers out of the video using that greenscreen stu.
 Amazing what you can do with computers these days, buddy.
 This mightbe your perception too.As you'll discover in this book, stopmotion is much simpler, and usesnone of the techniques above. In fact, stopmotion has been in existencealmost as long as movies themselves. The key to understanding stopmotion is understanding whatmovies really are, and how they trick our eyes into seeing motion. Tohelp you understand how this is possible, we’ll take a little trip throughmovie history.
