frame at a time as an object like a toy car is moved in
small steps. When all frames are played back the car
seems to move.

The flip book is a collection of sequential images on the pages of the
book. As the pages are flipped through, the images appear to be in motion.

Cutout Animation is produced by using flat card, paper, or photographs. It


is involves moving the created shapes in small steps and taking a picture

onto film strip. There are a number of animated films produced by this
method.

Modern techniques include 2D Animation (The Lion King) and 3D
