What you will learn

You will learn to organize and keep track of multiple moving parts at the same time. Parallax with trees will help us create the illusion the car is moving fast. Additionally, you will learn toggling two pictures of a road, and spinning tires will add to the illusion. You will juggle five or six different items for each picture. Fortunately, this is stop motion animation, so it is impossible to "drop" anything you are juggling.

Why Is This important?

Keeping track of multiple elements at once is a must for an animator. This exercise uses 9 different cutouts to create parallax. This exercise will test organizational skills, depth perception, spacial skills, and sequential thinking.
