One of Pixar’s ideas to show the public how animation works was to build a zoetrope, much like the one Studio Ghibli had made previously. However, instead of drawings, 18 different sculptures were made, and a strobe light was used as they spun around. This made each of the images freeze in space, creating the illusion of animation. [video]
