Event description

When film was first invented, during the Victorian era, film was a curiosity, often found at fairgrounds. Over 100 years later many of the tricks Victorian filmmakers used can still be applied today and can be created with modern cameras. We may be in the era of special effects and superheroes but the principles of how film 'tricks' the eye remain the same.

This workshop will demonstrate many of the early trick techniques used by filmmakers.

Participants will then create early animation devices which employ Persistence of Vision to appear to 'move' in the same way that film does.

Delivered by Into Film and supported by NLS Moving Image Archive and BFI National Lottery Funding
