I'm nutty about prehistoric cave art. This short animated film takes sketches based on real prehistoric art and shows how the original ancient artists were actually creating their own moving pictures, from 15,000 to 32,000 years ago. Amazing!
J. Stuart Blackton, issued a short film in 1906 entitled Humourous Phases of Funny Faces where he drew comical faces on a blackboard, photographed them, and the erased it to draw another stage of the facial expression. This "stop-motion" effect astonished audiences by making drawings comes to life.
