Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

But the editing takes hours to do.

Also, You'd have to have a very controlled environmental, IE lighting. Well simple enough if you can lock exposure but just saying.

I dont think I'd film it. It would just be fun to take a wheel and make something like it were a flip book animation, for the hell of it

Its not stop-motion, the animation is purely a result of the the different shapes on the wheel being captured by the camera as it spins.

I'm confused about what's going on. At 15 you're in the Art Center's BA program? That doesn't make sense. You mean the Saturday High, yes?

The technical name for this is a zoetrope; that's where it got its name.

Back in my undergrad days; a classmate did one of these for our studio art final. Aside from the fact that he chopped up a olmo in the process of creating the frame for the zoetrope; it was amazing in person.

Oh wait, did I say prodigy? I meant porridge. A child porridge, for the mama and papa bear.
