Zoetrope A zoetrope is one of several pre-film animation devices that produce the illusion of motion by displaying a sequence of drawings or photographs showing progressive phases of that motion.

After seeing my first real zoetrope in 2015 at the Pixar expo, I knew I wanted to incorporate this dynamic experience into my work whenever I got an opportunity.
Its so magical!
So when I was asked to come up with a concept for ‘permanent experience at the Efteling’ I thought it would be a perfect fit. Together with their creative design team and production company Next Empire + 3d designer Klaas-Harm Boer this all came to live.
The process of storyline, location, 3d modelling and printing, finding the perfect Coca-Cola and Pieck colours and then trigger (opening the bottle puts the Zoetrope in motion) as well as music (composed by Efteling) was interesting and fun.
The zoetrope was officially opened in June 2016 at Station Oost next to the Python.Watch now
