    5. Highlight- History of Animation: Thaumatrope & Faraday's Wheel

    5. Highlight- History of Animation: Thaumatrope & Faraday's Wheel

    What’s a Thaumatrope? What did Michael Faraday do in his spare time from advancing the scientific field? Walt Disney learned about all this and more, so tune in to find out too!
     
    Persistence of Vision
    Positive After-images- When an image quickly moves out of field of vision, but an afterimage briefly remains behind
    Negative After-images- When you look at a bright pattern, then look at a white/blank background and continue to briefly see that pattern of a “complementary color to the original.”

    Thaumatrope (1824)
    Invented by John Ayton Paris, British physician, in 1824 and talked about this invention in a book he published in 1827.
    The invention was a cardboard circle with 2 holes on opposite sides and an image drawn on either side of the disc. Strings are threaded through the two holes on left and right ends. You twirl the string with your fingers, then when you let go, it spins rapidly and makes a single image between the two sides (positive after-images)

    Faraday’s Wheel (1824/1830)
    First described by Peter Mark Roget in the 1824 article, Explanation of an optical deception in the appearance of the spokes of a wheel when seen through vertical aperatures.
    The invention was 2 cogs/gears with gaps at regular intervals (similar to a bicycle tire) turn in opposing directions at the same speed. If you looked past the first spinning part to the farthest one, it appeared to not be moving. A static image was on the second gear, which was seen without any blur.

    4. Interview: J Samuel Blankenship- Walt Disney Declaring Bankruptcy

    4. Interview: J Samuel Blankenship- Walt Disney Declaring Bankruptcy

     
    J Samuel "Sam" Blankenship and I reminisce about our time working together at Kilimanjaro Safari Ride in Disney's Animal Kingdom through the Disney College Program (DCP)! We also talk about why Walt Disney specifically filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Kansas City. And finally, we get de-monorailed to talk about the upcoming live-action Lion King film and the excellence of the Hunchback of Notre Dame's soundtrack. 
     
    Chapter 7 bankruptcy- Debtors take ownership of and liquidate (sell) all assets of the company/person. 
    Chapter 11 bankruptcy- The bankrupt person/company is able to keep some of their assets and renegotiates the terms of the debt with his/her debtors.
     
    J Samuel Blankenship also has almost released his new podcast, Stories Told by Me! Be sure to keep an eye out for it out on your podcasting platforms/apps!

sgoldmann ,

Great!!

This is a great Disney podcast, I throughly enjoy listening!

Aggiecowgirl15 ,

For the Disney fanatic

A good find! Before any new Disney movie releases or trips to Disney World/Land, I prep with Disney podcasts/research. This was a good way to mix it up, taking things way back with the Walt history.

Bethanneeeeee ,

SO GOOD!

As a major Disney fan I was so excited to listen to this and it is just as great as I thought it would be!!! So so so good! I cannot wait for the next episode! Listen and be ready to learn! You won’t regret it.
