A Moment in Time Video project encourages students to consider the potential interplay between still and moving images. Students use moving images as a source from which to abstract still imagery.

For an interesting short history of the use of still images to create motion, see the Museum of Unnatural Mystery’s explanation and history of Stop Motion Animation. The site includes a nice piece on the making of movie classic, King Kong.
