What is Animation:
Animation is the term we use to describe any film that is deliberately made one frame at a time by manipulating drawings, puppets or computer-generated imagery. It is the technique of photographing successive drawings or positions of puppets or models to create an illusion of movement when the film is shown as a sequence.
