INTEGRATING ANIMATED PROJECTIONS INTO A STAGE SHOW

ANIMATION TERMINOLOGY

Animatic - Laying out photographs on a timeline in video editing software. 

Book stand - A flat table with a downward facing camera mount and halogen side lights

Onion skinning - To "see" where things were in the previous frame by flipping back and forth between the previous frame and the current frame

Pixilation -  A technique where live actors are used as a frame-by-frame subject in an animated film.

Replacement - Instead of animating a single object the object is replaced entirely by something similar but with a slight change in it
 

HELPFUL SOFTWARE
