To animate is to infuse life into something that is inanimate or without life. An animation film breathes life into painted or sketched characters. The hero and heroines are not real life movie stars or animals and birds.
Animation films involve the quick display of a series of images to give the illusion of movement. It is a kind of optical illusion of movement. The phenomenon is known as vision persistence.
My Life as a Zucchini
The Swiss stop motion animation film Ma Vie de Courgette
will be released in the United States on February 24, under the title My Life as a Zucchini, and the film — which thankfully bears no resemblance, thematic or otherwise, to Veggie Tales — has its first U.S. trailer. The film brings levity and whimsy as it explores the otherwise heavy environment of a foster home, following the death of the titular (he goes by Zucchini) nine-year-old protagonist’s mother.
The trailer is in French with English subtitles, but /Film notes that it’ll be released in the U.S. with an English dub that features Will Forte, Ellen Page, Nick Offerman, and Amy Sedaris.
Soon many other artists began to experiment. One was newspaper cartoonist Winsor McCay who began to work with a team. He came to produce some noted films like Little Nemo and Gertie the Dinosaur. In the 1910`s cartoon animated films began to rule the scene. The technique came to known as cel-animation.
