The Nuts and Bolts of Animation
Today, animated films are made with individual sequential drawings on paper or on clear plastic (celluloid) sheets called cels, which are then filmed by a camera. When the individual cels are projected very fast on a screen, they look like a continuous moving drawing.
Animated films can also be created on computers using special software. If you've watched cartoons on Saturday morning you've probably seen cartoons made using both methods. Animated films such as "Shrek" or "Finding Nemo" were made with computers. "The Lion King" and "Beauty and the Beast" were made with cels. Which style to you like better?
