The earliest attempts of this technique date back to the French pre-cinema technique of “Ombro-Cinéma” in the late 1890’s. The animated sequence is created when the complex image - the Kinegram - is viewed through the acetate (see through sheet ) overlay with a solid black pattern printed on it. The blank spaces of the pattern being transparent, as the overlay is slid across the Kinegram, different sections of the Kinegram become visible... Your brain links this succession of appearing images together, creating the illusion of motion.
