Report from Siggraph: Motion blur
Caught Phil Tippett giving history of imagination. Jesus, drowning in fan boy idolatry. Little models of the killer bot from RoboCop, Imperial Walkers, etc. outside the hall. Tippet did a survey from stop-motion to CGI. Started his survey at the cave paintings. The bison at Lascaux had a motion blur, hence, animation. Nice.
