We’ve featured several animations here on Directors Notes in past two years, but Mark Simon Hewis’ The Life Size Zoetrope stands out for its shear ambition. Turning a carnival ride into the zoetrope of the title, complete with people turning the pages of flip books to create the animation is no mean feat, but luckily Mark joins us to reveal how it was made possible.

The Life Size Zoetrope (2007)

The Life Size Zoetrope is the celebratory life story of one man, told via a one-take live action shot of a human zoetrope containing the film.
