Stop motion is an animation technique in which
an object is moved incrementally with frames shot for each new
position. When the film is played, the object appears to move on
its own in either a disjointed series of movements or smooth
action. This event will uncover how it is possible to create this
illusion of lifelike movement, as well as considering why these
films make audiences feel the way they do.
This event will include a film screening of
'Tchaikovsky' (2011) and a discussion between director Barry Purves
and neuroscientist James Kilner.
