We enter the Animation Museum and head towards the entrance of the first floor exhibit. The entrance is in the shape of a camera lens and we enter it to learn more about animation now.

(Altamira cave paintings)                           
Once you go past the entrance, you will first see the Altamira cave paintings. The Altamira cave painting looks as if though life is blown into the four legs of a boar that is stopped, and it is said that this is the start of animation. 

(Comma filming animation)                              (Color animation)
After passing the origin of animation, we learn about the creation techniques of animation. There are various methods such as making movies using shadows, or make it protrude outwards and add light to create shadows. Turning pages one at a time to make it look like it moves is called comma filming. At first, it was made by turning 8 frames per second, but afterwards, the filming technique was developed so that the pictures in the front and back do not overlap.
