You see motion on screens everyday – to get your attention, to sell, to entertain, to teach. For content creators, it’s important to understand how that motion works. Through an animated video, my thesis aims to introduce the basics of on-screen motion.
The most important concept is that pictures on a screen don’t move, they change like a slideshow. When changing images are displayed sequentially fast enough, they blend together and are perceived as motion. By understanding that concept, and the nuances that come with it, video producers are better equipped to create their vision.
