Graphic Animation History

This lesson we look at what Graphical Animation and the history behind it.

Ajarn David


When did graphic animation start?


Ajarn David



Animation is a graphic representation of drawings to show movement within those drawings.  A series of drawings are linked together and usually photographed by a camera.  The drawings have been slightly changed between individualized frames so when they are played back in rapid succession (24 frames per second) there appears to be seamless movement within the drawings.

Ajarn David


Pioneers of animation include Winsor

McCay of the United States and Emile Cohl and Georges

Melies of France.  Some consider McCay's 

Sinking of the Lusitania

 from 1918 as the first animated

History of animation

Early animations, which started appearing before 1910, consisted of simple drawings photographed one at a time.  It was extremely labor intensive as there were literally hundreds of drawings per minute of film.  The development of celluloid around 1913 quickly made animation easier to manage.  Instead of numerous drawings, the animator now could make a complex background and/or foreground and sandwich moving characters in between several other pieces of celluloid, which is transparent except for where drawings are painted on it.  This made it unnecessary to repeatedly draw the background as it remained static and only the characters moved.  It also created an illusion of depth, especially if foreground elements were placed in the frames.

 Walt Disney took animation to a new level.  He was the first animator to add sound to his movie cartoons with the premiere of 

Steamboat Willie in 1928.  In 1937, he produced the first full length animated feature film, 

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

  With the introduction of computers, animation took on a whole new meaning.  Many feature films of today had animation incorporated into them for special effects.  A film like 

Star Wars

by George Lucas would rely heavily on computer animation for many of its special effects.  Toy Story

, produced by Walt Disney Productions and Pixar Animation Studios, became the first full length feature film animated entirely on computers when it was released in 1995.

Other E-commerce

Online Auctions

When you think online auction, you think eBay. Physical auctions predate online auctions, but the Internet made auctions accessible to a large number of buyers and sellers. Online auctions are an efficient mechanism for price discovery. Many buyers find the auction shopping mechanism much interesting than regular storefront shopping.

Internet Banking

Today it is possible for you to perform the entire gamut of banking operations without visiting a physical bank branch. Interfacing of websites with bank accounts, and by extension credit cards, was the biggest driver of ecommerce.

Online Ticketing

Air tickets, movie tickets, train tickets, play tickets, tickets to sporting events, and just about any kind of tickets can be booked online. Online ticketing does away with the need to queue up at ticket counters.

-What are the benefits of E-commerce?

- Where is the biggest market in the world for e-commerce?

Ajarn David



In groups of 2, work together to make a poster highlighting what we have learned today about E-commerce.

Use Microsoft Publisher to create your poster. Use a template of your choice. Highlight what we have learned. Insert some logos of well known e-commerce websites that the online shopper is likely to use. Make a brief note under each logo about what type of business it is i.e. ‘clicks and mortar’.

Please type both names on the poster. E-mail me your work before the end of class.
