Wikipedia 10K Redux by Reagle from Starling archive. Bugs abound!!!
A film/movie produced by a frame by frame process where each frame is individually composed; either generated as a computer graphic, by photographing a drawn image, or repeatedly making small changes to a flexible model, and photographing the result. When the resulting film is viewed at normal speed, there is an illusion of continuous movement. Generating such a film is very labour intensive and tedious, though the development of [[computer animation]] has greatly speeded up the process. [[Anime]] is the common term used for [[Japanese Animation]].
