The Kid Should See This

Facial Recognition (1978) by Al Jarnow

Filmmaker Al Jarnow created time-lapse, stop-motion, and cell animation short films for PBS’s 3-2-1 Contact and Sesame Street in the 1970s and the 1990s. Filmed from above in 1978, the stop-motion short Facial Recognition demonstrates image resolution as kids build images of a familiar face with more and more dots.
