Short Film Of The Day: The Bicycle Animation

Why Watch? Can you create animation in real-time? It’s a fascinating question and a challenge that clearly comes from a unique mind. Instead of hand-drawing every cel or stop-motioning objects you move a centimeter at a time, Katy Beveridge decided that she could create animation using the natural, real-time flip book effect of something you probably have on your porch right now.

The result here shows the method’s limitations, but it also manages to produce an oddly mesmerizing effect.

What does it cost? Just 2 minutes of your time.
