The Worlds Greatest Bicycle Wheel

The Cyclotrope from tim Wheatley on Vimeo.

From the brilliant mind of Tim Wheatley. He is currently a student at the University College Falmouth in Cornwall. This is a wonderful take of a Zoetrope, a very old school way of animating 18 frames of illustrations.
Although it looks like stop animation (or claymation, one frame at a time) this is indeed filmed in real time as he spins the wheel on its hub.

This project has definitely got creative my bits tingly. Well done Tim!

Be sure to check out the rest of his films at http://www.timwheatley.co.uk/
