Multi-layered zoetrope, custom designed and built by myself as part of a college project titled "New Technologies" where we were given the task of either inventing or using an existing technology and taking it somewhere new. I custom designed a tiered, slotted base from corrugated cardboard allowing up to three layers of materials to be used within the zoetrope. The outer layer is laser-cut card whilst the inner layers can be printed media or in the case of my first test, manipulated light layers created using semi-opaque plastic, coloured acetate and fluorescent lighting (see photos below). Video was shot using a Canon 550D fitted with Pentax 50mm Lens and was edited in Final Cut Pro. Other than some slight colour correction there are no additional effects in the video.
