What is an Animation?

  • Animation is the art of creating the illusion of movements through a series of images or photographs (drawn by hand or generated in any software tool) made at different stages and combining them to create a motion picture. 
  • Animation enhances the chances to make movies with fictional stories for the purpose of creativity and also for dramatisation.
