This has all been filmed on a camera, the horses on the carousel are spaced to spin in sync with the camera’s frame rate, and each one is carefully studied to follow the one before it, so that once animated they appear to be galloping.

The zoetrope was filmed surrounded by a multitude of smaller carousels, which were all hand made for The Makerie Studio’s New York launch.
