Flipbook Animation

Objective

Students will depict movement using simple flipbook techniques and will be able to
define basic animation vocabulary: persistence of vision, registration, key frames, and
tweening

Method

​You will design a simple 24 page flip book, that shows fluidity of motion and attention to detail.  Use the resources below to help you understand the medium.  The drawings do not have to be complicated, but the final version should be done in pen and in color!

1.  Add a title and your name to the front of the flipbook.
2.  Decide on the “story” you will tell in the flipbook – there should be a beginning, a middle and an ending
3.  Number the pages somewhere on the page.
4.  You may start your drawings in rough draft in pencil, BUT they must be finished in pen and in color.
5.  When you have completed your flipbook, you will take a movie – close-up, to show how your flipbook works.  Be sure that the movie is clear and it shows your flipbook in the best light.
