Frequently Used Animation skills

Pixillation (stop-motion) In Pixillation, the camera is made to operate one frame at a time instead of the usual 24 frames per second.  This allows time to change the position of the actor or object.  Various combinations of actor and speed can be employed to stylize the movement.
Paper animation Movement is developed progressively by repeating the whole drawing with its successive adjustments.  Backgrounds must be kept fairly simple to avoid excessive work. Sometimes the entire image, both foreground and background, is animated or changed in every drawing.
Cel Animation Movement is developed by making separate drawings on transparent sheets of acetate (cels) for each different position.  For every frame a different cel or combination of cels is placed over the background and photographed by the animation camera.  Backgrounds can be interchanged, and filmed wholly or in part. 
Cut outs Drawings, cutout figures, or any other flat objects are filmed against a background.  Cutouts are photographed frame by frame.
Object Animation Puppets; or strings, beads, etc. 
Sand and Paint on Glass Animation
Animation without Camera The animator either draws directly on clear film, or scratch of the emulsion with a sharp instrument.  Colour is added, in the form of dyes, markers or paint.
