What is Animation?
Animation involves presenting still images in a quick sequence to create the illusion of movement. This illusion can be created by images which can either be computer-generated, hand drawn or photographed.
Walt Disney describes animation as
"...a medium of story telling and visual entertainment which can bring pleasure and information to people of all ages everywhere in the world." This definition emphasizes the broad audience to which animation can appeal to.
