Stop Motion Animation

I have looked at the progression and evolution of the moving image, by researching and making nineteenth-century "philosophical toys" such as the thaumatrop, zoopraxiscope and phenakistoscop. I feel I have developed a much deeper understanding of how influential Muybridge was, and how stop motion animation evolved. I am now able to move onto the next crucial part oif my project, by researching into stop motion animation techniques and artists. One of which includes Jan Švankmajer, a surrealist artist and filmmaker who specialises in stop motion animation.
