BAFTA Award-winning animator and inventor of the Phonotrope® Jim Le Fevre brings his unique invention to The London Illustration Fair to round off it's The Big Draw: Living Lines 2017 European tour!
This is your opportunity to bring your ideas to life using our bespoke Phonotrope® discs, your imagination and a record player! Take your discs home with you once your artwork is complete.
The Phonotrope® is a type of 3D/2D zoetrope created by Jim Le Fevre in 2006 and officially named in 2009. After trying to create an in-camera animation technique for a Super-8 film competition in 2005, Le Fevre stumbled upon the idea to harness the revolutions of a record player with a live action camera and in 2006 the Phonotrope® was born.
